The newly restored Lollipop Farm Train will make its debut this weekend at the Greenlawn Pickle Festival. On Saturday, September 21, the Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association will host the 34th annual Pickle Festival at the John Gardiner Farm, located at 900 Park Avenue, Huntington. Among the many events and activities, the highlight will be the opening of the original Lollipop Farm Train, which has recently been restored by members of the Historical Association. The train will be open for children to enjoy a ride and experience a piece of Syosset history. The train was a prime attraction at the Lollipop Farm petting zoo, located at Jericho Turnpike and Jackson Avenue. The original train locomotive has been fitted with a new engine, and the train has been repainted to its original yellow and red color scheme.
In addition to the train, the Pickle Festival will feature hay rides, a corn maze, potato digging demonstrations, antique cars and trucks, home-baked goods and local farm produce. For more information about the Pickle Festival call 631-754-1180. The John Gardiner Farm is located at 900 Park Avenue, Huntington, NY.
