Day Out with Thomas @ Tweetsie Railroad!
Date: 6/1 - 6/10   click here for website


All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine™ is chugging into a station near you for Day Out With Thomas™: Mystery on the Rails Tour 2012. Thomas fans are invited to come spend the day with their favorite No. 1 engine. For over 66 years, children have been captivated by the courageous adventures of Thomas and his engine friends. This year, Day Out With Thomas will visit more than 45 cities in the United States and Canada and is expected to welcome more than one million passengers in 2012.

Day Out with Thomas is a fun-filled and exciting way for children and adults to enter the world of Thomas & Friends. Day Out With Thomas provides an opportunity for kids to take a ride on a 15-ton replica of Thomas & have their pictures taken with Sir Topham Hatt, the controller of Thomas' railway. The tour provides a unique, interactive family experience at every station, offering a variety of entertaining activities that reflect the local flavor of each stop. Different forms of entertainment - from petting zoos, miniature golf, and bounce houses to face-painting and magic shows - make each Day Out With Thomas event special. In addition, every location has a Thomas & Friends Imagination Station with Thomas-themed activities including stamps, temporary tattoos, hands-on arts and crafts, and a Thomas storytelling and video viewing area.


Remarkable Rhododendron Ramble

The Remarkable Rhododendron Ramble
Date: Saturday June 02 - June 17, 2012
Time: 01:00 pm - 02:00 pm

Our staff naturalists can’t wait to share their excitement for the showy rose-lavender Catawba Rhododendron that blooms its way up Grandfather’s slopes throughout the month of June. Join us for special programs designed to help you get the most out of this memorable sight.


The Catawba Rhododendron is abundant all across Grandfather Mountain, from MacRae Meadows at 4,300 feet in elevation to MacRae Peak at 5,845 feet in elevation. Because the shrub abounds across this broad range of elevations, its purple flowers can be enjoyed at each successive elevation. The first blooms appear at the lower overlooks in late May and the display will arrive at the Swinging Bridge by the end of June.


Join us at 1 pm each day to participate in special programs and activities that celebrate this herald of summer. All programs and guided walks are included in the price of admission. For details, phone 800-468-7325.
