Summer starts officially on June 20 at 11:24 PM CDT. The Summer Solstice is when the sun reaches the northernmost point from the equator. So it is the day we have the longest amount of sunlight in the year. Great day to celebrate the day and the “good ol’ summertime” !! Lots of fun in the next month. let’s get started.
On Friday, June 23 the stars at night, shine big and bright, over Texas State Railroad during the Starlight Dinner Train. Passengers on this romance-themed dinner train will enjoy a peaceful ride through the East Texas Forest Country to Maydelle and back with an extra dose of star power.
Enjoy the unique combination of a full moon, an array of food and beverage, and romance on the rails. With the path of the train miles from the lights of the nearest towns, the skies will be dark enough to see even some of the fainter constellations not seen from the city. The June 23 date was chosen for the velvety, inky dark of a waning moon combined with the total absence of city lights. Appetizers to be presented are Sweet Baby Peppers with Yogurt and Honey, Artichoke Dip with Sliced Baguette and Seasonal Fruit SaladThe main course is a hearty serving of Beef and Chicken Kabobs with Grilled VegetablesDessert is French Vanilla Cheesecake with sliced Strawberries and chocolate bark with Champagne Beverages available are Water, Soda, Ice Tea and Coffee Be A Little Adventurous, Try Some Prickly Pear Lemonade!
