Dog Days of Summer
This July, Tweetsie Railroad will welcome two legendary cartoon
characters, Scooby-Doo and Shaggy, to the park for the first time July 11 to 13.
The beloved mystery-solver and man’s best friend will entertain park guests and take photos daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Tweetsie will also host a favorite annual event once again this year, when K-9s in Flight Frisbee Dogs, a group of incredibly talented rescue dogs, soar into the park July 19 to 27. These gravity-defying canines will entertain park guests for nine days, with three daily performances at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Guests can enjoy these special events in addition to a full day of Wild West family fun at Tweetsie. Hop aboard the train pulled by a historic, steam-powered locomotive for a three-mile adventure through the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Spend the day exploring the streets of a Western town, take a spin on amusement park rides, visit the animals at the Deer Park Zoo, sit back for the toe-tappin’ live entertainment and shows, or take a scenic chair lift ride to Miner’s Mountain and pan for gold.
Tweetsie Railroad is located on U.S. 321 between Boone and Blowing Rock. For more information, visit http://www.tweetsie.com.
