Families enjoy National Train Day at Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum

With two train rides circling near the Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum on Saturday, parents and children had a front seat to fun and some history for the celebration of National Train Day.

Crafts, bubbles, a train photo booth, live music by Depot Jam, balloons, concessions and a face paint artist also were available for guests at the event.
