WILLIAMS, Ariz. – While most of us are enjoying the first few days of 2012, Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce CEO/President Gioia Goodrum continues to work diligently to plan Williams’ portion of Arizona’s Centennial celebration scheduled for Feb. 14. Visitors and residents can expect a full day celebrating the Centennial with $7.50 rides on Grand Canyon Railway’s (GCR) coach class, a Sweetheart Dinner at Sultana and, at the end of the day, fireworks.
(Admin note: Unfortunately The Bearizona Wildlife Park will not reopen until March 1st)
The Arizona Centennial Train will depart the Williams Depot at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 14 to the Grand Canyon pulled by vintage steam locomotive 4960. In honor of this historic occasion, GCR is offering round-trip coach class tickets for $7.50 per person – the same cost as in 1912. Coach seating will be in the fully refurbished historic Harriman-style coaches. Also, the Winslow Harvey Girls and the Bill Williams Mountain Men will be onboard to provide narrative information and stories from Arizona’s history………….
