Pullen Park in Raleigh recently reopened in time for the holidays. The park closed in December 2009 and was opened again on November 19.
During the first week the park was open last month, visitors purchased more than 66,000 tickets for rides on trains, boats, and a carousel at the park. The park’s restaurant, Pullen Place cafe, made some changes before reopening by altering their menu to include locally-grown ingredients and healthier meal options.
This Thursday, the park will begin its 4-day long 2011 Holiday Express event. Through today, tickets can be purchased online for $7. From Wednesday on, tickets will be $10 and must be purchased at the park’s welcome center. Kids under the age of 2 are admitted to the park for free.
The city of Raleigh and the Crabtree Rotary Club are presenting the event, which will feature music, arts and crafts, carousel rides, and train rides. The park’s train will be decorated with $15,000 worth of lights for the event. Activities will take place from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Raleigh workers’ compensation lawyers of Scudder & Hedrick, PLLC would like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.
