THE DURAND Railroad Days festival kicked off Thursday morning, May 18, as Big Rock Amusements offered free rides from 6 to 8 a.m. The midway features many similar rides as Arnold Amusements offered in past years, but new rides such as a carousel and bumper cars drew rave reviews from youngsters who were lined up before 6 a.m. to get an early sneak peak of this year’s rides.
