Come Thank Those Who Made the Rail Trail Possible

It all begins here on Wednesday July 4th at 5 pm. Some twenty one years in the making, Holliston's rail trail is now for all intents and purposes complete. To show the town's appreciation to those who made the trail a reality, the Friends of Holliston Trails have organized several events to say thank you. Under two large tents in the parking lot of Casey's Crossing there will be free hot dogs, hamburgers and soda. Sorry folks, you can have beer inside Casey's but no alcoholic beverages are allowed outside. Live music will add to the festivities, and at 6 pm, Senate President Karen Spilka, Rep. Carolyn Dykema, and Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Jay Marsden will honor the members of the Rail Trail Committee. Town Historian Joanne Hulbert will give a brief history of the railroad line when on July 4th 1847 the first train arrived at the depot (now Casey's Crossing). A ribbon cutting will conclude activities before events move to the 8 Arch Bridge on Woodland Street.

A laser light show will begin after dusk at the 8 Arch Bridge on Woodland Street. Woodland Street from Lowland to the Schools will be closed during the event. Seating will be on Woodland Street and attendees are asked to BRING YOUR OWN SEATING. Parking is  available at the schools.

 

The entire event is being co-sponsored by the local American Legion Post 47, Celebrate Holliston, VFW Post 8507 and the Friends of Holliston Trails.
