On Saturday, April 29, 2006, from 11 AM to 3 PM, the 2nd Annual Wheeling Caboose Festival was held here at the museum! The day ended with a 2:30 PM dedication event for the new “Upton House” exhibit here at the Museum! Several hundred attendees enjoyed the outdoor festival, which included the Whiteside calliope, Diecast Derby (a racetrack for the little ones to race their Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars on), various area crafters, unique food, and much more! WTOV got into the act, interviewing Millie Upton about her dollhouse, in a segment seen on their 6 PM and 11 PM newscasts. And the weather cooperated, with a beautiful day throughout the event! Didn’t get to attend? Mark your calendars, because NEXT year, the festival will be held on April 28, 2007!
