Teddy bears will secure kids a free train ride on the Texas State RailroadFans of teddy bears in Texas will have another great event! On August 5th 2016 the Texas State Railroad will give kids a free train ride with their bears.

The Texas State Railroad will host the fourth annual Teddy Bear’s Train Ride. Special trains will be waiting at the Rusk Depot for all children ages 12 and younger.

Kids have to bring their teddy bears or other stuffed animals. And kids will receive free tickets when they show their teddy bears at the ticked window.

The Teddy Bear’s Train ride

Trains will depart at 11 AM, 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM. The teddy bear-themed train will feature snacks and juice boxes. There will be several other activities on the grounds before the train departs. There will be a concession on the train as well.

For the fourth year in a row, the railroad is partnering with the Anderson County Blankets and Bears Children’s Fund. This organization collects donations of new teddy bears and baby blankets and distributes them to police officers and hospital emergency room workers. And, they give them to any traumatized children they encounter. So, you can help them out at the Teddy Bear’s Train Ride with donations.
