Tweetsie Railroad Welcomes Family Show July 17-19
Tweetsie Railroad is the summer destination for fun when the HIT Entertainment Fun Festival comes to town from July 17-19.
This fun-filled family festival stars Barney, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina, and takes place at Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock. Families will enjoy spectacular stage performances. Barney performs with super-dee-duper singing and dancing, Bob the Builder gets kids up and interacting as he takes to the stage with a 20-minute performance, and Angelina Ballerina dances along to a storybook reading. Plus, children will have a chance to meet, shake hands and get photos taken with their favorite characters.

Families can also enjoy the Deer Park zoo, Miner's Mountain and live entertainment for all ages including Diamond Lil's Can-Can Revue in the Tweetsie Palace Saloon.
