Once again, the National Railway Museum at Lipson Street, Port Adelaide will be the place for a great school holiday event, the Circus Train comes to the Port, held over nine days during the July school holiday period — Saturday, 12 July to Sunday, 20 July inclusive from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.
Key free attractions will include Circus Troop street theatre, jugglers, clowns, Dan Burt One Man Band, Daddy Long Legs, Presto the Magician, a carnival barrel organ and the very popular OZ Wildlife tent.
There are three separate trains running each day — the big black steam train Peronne, the Redhen railcar rattlers, and the favourite train ride, the Circus Train with Bub the blue steam engine in front.
Every visitor will each be provided with three free train ride tickets to be enjoyed during their stay at the Circus Train event.
Plenty of food and drink will be available with Rotary running a cafeteria and a big BBQ. There will also be a fairy floss and popcorn stall.
