 Wagons will leave at approximately 30-minute intervals to begin a loop within the park..  Each wagon will make several stops where costumed characters will portray historic characters and tell about long ago events in and around the park.  The audience will remain on the wagons during the entire circuit. A tour guide will add narration between stops during the ride. Reservations will be for specific report times beginning at 1 P.M. 

This is a fundraiser for the Friends of Edgar Evins State Park., an all-volunteer nonprofit organization with the sole purpose of helping the park.. More information about the group and how to join may be found on the website at www.foeesp.com or the Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/friendsofeesp
