Pioneer Day just around the bend
Newport's annual festival will chug into town this year.
Trains are the theme of 2010's Pioneer Day, planned at Pioneer Park Aug. 7.
Because Newport has been part of the railroading community for so long, "it's just a natural thing to do," said Steven Lanz Jr., event organizer.
With planning underway for a commuter train stop in Newport, Lanz thought it was a good time to bring some publicity to railroading, he said.
