"Come on, vamonos, everybody let's go"... to Tweetsie Railroad!

The popular stars of Nickelodeon's hit animated preschool series, "Dora the Explorer" and "Go, Diego, Go!," will welcome fans for a fun-filled, three-day weekend June 24-26.

Fans will have the chance to meet, greet and pose for pictures with Dora the Explorer and her cousin, Diego, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout the weekend.

Dora is a 7-year-old Latina heroine, whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests. Diego Marquez, Dora's cousin, is an 8-year-old action-adventure hero who loves nature and animals.

Dora and Diego explore their world just as preschoolers do everyday, and their television shows actively engage audiences using a variety of learning techniques.

Tweetsie Railroad offers these special events and guest appearances in addition to the daily features of Wild West family fun.

Tweetsie Railroad is open seven days a week through Aug. 21 before returning to the weekend schedule (open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) from Aug. 26 through Oct. 30, including Labor Day Monday.

The Ghost Train Halloween Festival will take place Friday and Saturday nights Sept. 30 through Oct. 29 from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.
