The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad is inviting the public to celebrate spring and the Easter season on April 3 with an excursion through the Chehalis River Valley.
Each train ride will be followed by an Easter egg hunt. Candy-filled eggs will be hidden by the Easter Bunny in the field at the depot while riders enjoy the trip. Covered and open-air cars will provide seating. Age groups for the Easter Egg hunt are: up to three years; four to seven years and ages eight to 12. Attendees are asked to bring their own baskets.
The cost is $16 per person.
Children three and under are free for the ride and egg hunt. General reserved admission is required as space is limited to 50% capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
