Cannonball Day is an annual event sponsored by the Friends of the 457 and area businesses designed to highlight the Minneapolis & St Louis steam locomotive in East Park, Mason City, Iowa.
Cannonball Day is filled from morning 'til 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! In 2016, the band Bolder Road will entertain in the evening. And don't miss the great talent of our youth at the Bill Riley Talent Search. Look for more info under the EVENTS menu.
All proceeds from the day's event, and donations from the Lions Club BBQ and other sponsors, 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 25, 2016 for a great time!
