Cannonball Day is an annal event sponsored by the Friends of the 457 and area business designed to highlight the Minneapolis & St Louis steam locomotive in East Park, Mason City, Iowa.
The 2013 Cannonball Day was a great success! We are working on a web slide show of the event, so watch this page for more.
The Cannonball Day celebration is filled from morning until night with fun activities for families and children of all ages who love to be around trains! From the early morning Cannonball Kids Fun Run, to the free stage band entertainment, inflatable playgrounds, amusement train rides for all ages, and the great Mason City Evening Lions Club Chicken BBQ, there is something for everyone! Denny & the DC Drifters, a popular, award winning band doing classic oldies will be back for 2014.
All proceeds from the day's event, and donations from the Lions Club BBQ, go to help support the work of restoration, preservation, and maintenance for the education and fun of the public. Be there on Cannonball Day, June 28, 2014 for a great time!
