Teddy Bear Weekend

In honor of National Teddy Bear Day, officially celebrated on September 9th, we are honoring our Teddy Bears on the weekend of September 7th & 8th on the Osceola & St. Croix Valley Railway.  Teddy Bear Day is a holiday where people acknowledge the special bond between themselves and their teddy bears.  You and your Teddy Bear(s) are invited to ride the rails together on any of 5 trips over the weekend.  Please consider donating a new or clean and presentable Teddy Bear to Osceola area firefighters.  The bears are greatly appreciated by families impacted by fire and other difficult events.

A photography contest will be held the weekend of the event for guests riding the train.  Pictures submitted should be of activities on the train or in and around the Osceola or Dresser depots.  Contestants can submit up to two photographs for consideration to the OSCV Photo Event Facebook page.  Family passes to the Jackson Street Roundhouse in St. Paul will be awarded to the top three submissions.

A concession car is available on the train for coffee, sodas, and snacks. All trips depart from the Osceola Depot with 4 total runs to Marine on St. Croix MN and a single run to Dresser. The round trip to Marine is approximately 90 minutes. The Dresser trip is approximately 50 minutes.  Both trips are perfect for all ages. Scroll through the schedule below to make your reservations. Attire is casual. Dress for the weather.  Questions?
