There will also be storytelling, video viewing and live music at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. The Gold Coast Railroad Museum will also offer narrow gauge train Link Train rides, miniature golf, sandbox Sand Blast, face painting, activities tent, bounce houses, and Zoo Miami animal shows. Last year there were also multiple food vendors serving everything from pizza to elephant ears (yum! my favorite!).
