More things to do and places to go - May 2017

The Farmers' Markets are opening again!  On Saturday May 6, the Collingwood Farmers' Market will hold its annual ribbon cutting to announce the opening at 8:00 a.m. 

It is held on Atlantic Avenue along the Collingwood PATCO Hi-Speedline.  It opens eery Saturday through November from 8 to noon.  There are special events you can attend by signing up at collingswoodmarket.com (I've never done this so I can't vouch for the link or the activities, but I can tell you the Farmer Market is a fun place to shop and to have brunch or breakfast, or early lunch.  There is usually music by the crepes concession.

I noticed that the Haddon Heights Farmers' Market is also opening in May and is held on Sundays as well, in the area beside the train station and tracks down Station Avenue.

Here is a sweet one:  The Delaware and Susquehanna Model Railroad will have the Haddon Heights passenger station open and their HO scale train running.  The West Jersey National RR Historical Society will show train videos at Town Hall and the library will show chid friendly train videos.  Free Trolley rides from 10:30 to 1:30 and the town cafes and restaurants are open.  The Pine Barons Barbershop Chorus will stroll and sing for you.  Sounds like a fun day, Saturday, May 13th!  You know I LOVE Model Railroads!

All aboard!
Hope to see you there!  Happy Trails - Jo Ann
