Dogwood Special Brunch Train to offer unique view of annual blooming trees

PALESTINE — Texas State Railroad will launch its inaugural Dogwood Special Brunch Train, which departs from the Palestine Depot at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday,

March 30.

This special train ride was created especially for viewing the annual blooming of the dogwoods in their natural habitat, and is part of Palestine's 76th annual Dogwood Trails event.

A meal catered by Contemporary Catering of Palestine features a spinach, strawberry and grapefruit salad with poppy seed dressing; bacon and cheese quiche for adults and pigs in a blanket for children 12 and under; fresh fruit including strawberries, kiwi, melon, grapes and banana with a light fruity dressing; cheese and crackers; biscuits and jam; and Choux Rings (light and crunchy pastries glazed with a yummy, almond flavored glaze.)

Non-alcoholic beverages will also be served, including non-alcoholic versions of the traditional brunch beverages: the Mimosa and the Bloody Mary. Guests who wish to BYOB for these drinks may do so, but they must open and pour their own bottles.

The four-hour train ride will include a one-hour layover in Rusk for guests to stretch their legs, enjoy the park, view the exhibits in the depot and visit the gift shop.

Tickets are $50 per person. Seating is limited and tickets are selling fast. For more information or to book tickets, call 903-683-3098 or go to: https://www.texasstaterr.com/events.php
