De Soto at the Depot
Train ride, music and BBQ!

AllĀ aboard!

Join us Sunday, November 4th, at 5:00 PM for a one-of-a-kind train excursion.

We will meet at the Florida Rail Museum in Parrish, where we’ll board a beautifully restored vintage train (which we are unofficially calling the De Soto Express) and take a leisurely scenic ride to historic Willow Florida. Upon arrival, we will have live music featuring blues musician Steve Arvey and his fabulous band. Award winning Chef Robert will prepare a fantastic BBQ dinner featuring pulled pork, collard greens, baked beans and more!

Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

After dinner we return by train to the Parrish depot.

So make sure you have a ticket to ride and we’ll keep you on the right track!
