Step back in time! Prohibition has pushed folks to extreme measures with gold and silver mines shutting down due to lack of minerals. Moonshiners are setting up stills in abandoned mine shafts. "TAKE HEED" reports the Herald Democrat - revenuer's arrest three men transporting milk bottles painted white in an attempt to disguise their brew - white lightning.

Several coaches will feature guests in 'Period costume clothing' ranging circa 1880 to the Roaring 20s!
