A Day on the Oleander Express

This Event has been cancelled because of weather.

What could be more fun than riding the Shriners Choo Choo around the beautiful gardens and water features of the New Hanover County Arboretum?

The Ability Garden is inviting families and friends to the Arboretum for a fun-filled day of adventure with interactive and educational stops around the gardens! Children can get passports stamped as they ride on the Shriners’ train between stations with different activities. Last year’s event attracted more than 200 children and parents. This is a community-based event with participation from many volunteers and area non-profits: The Children’s Museum of Wilmington, the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, New Hanover County Bee Keepers, and the Tidewater Camellia Club.

Beverages provided by Wrightsville Beach Brewery. Snow Cones provided by Pelican SnoBalls. Food is by Trolley Stop Hotdogs.
