Firecracker Express

Clarkdale is an ideal 4th of July destination. The historic town park offers an old-fashioned 4th of July in the morning, including a pancake breakfast, children’s parade, live orchestra and a chance to ride in the town’s vintage firetruck. Afterwards, guests are encouraged to visit the Verde Canyon Railroad for an All-American BBQ luncheon available for purchase at depot prior to the train’s 1:00pm departure.  Also prior to the train’s departure, the symbol of our nation, the Bald Eagle, will be visiting with guests on the patio as part of Liberty Wildlife’s “Raptors at the Rails” educational program.
