Seems like we were just talking about the Polar Express, and here it is already time for Easter Bunny trains rides! Times flies, and so does childhood, so we’d like to give your NJ kids a special treat: a free trip on the Easter Bunny Train and an Easter Egg Hunt with the family on a Delaware River Railroad Excursion out of Phillipsburg, NJ. Read on for how to enter this fun springtime contest.
Two families will ride on a train behind the only operating steam locomotive in the state of New Jersey and hang out with Mr. E. Bunny, a banjo-playing Hobo and a Juggler (now that’s a threesome, huh?), courtesy of NJ Mommy Poppins and the New York Susquehanna & Western Technical and Historical Society*. Your ride will wind along the scenic Delaware River to Carpentersville, ending at the site of the historic Lime Kilns. In front of the 150-year old kilns is a beautiful little glade filled with Easter eggs where your child can collect eggs and take a picture with Mr. Bunny!
The Prize: One of two family four-packs of tickets to The Easter Bunny Train and Egg Hunt on the New York Susquehanna & Western Railway. Winners will choose from the dates of March 31, April 1 or April 7.
