COVID pandemic notice
While the dates are set to offer Electric Express 2020, the conditions related to COVID exposure and Provincial Health Office Orders do not allow us to offer the same experience as before.
We are examining ways to modify the event and maintain safety for all guests and volunteers.
Please check back for more information in November.
