Pan for Gold And Meet Pioneers
Living history groups bring the 1800s back to life, so you can interact with period-correct encampments and meet mountain men, cowboys, and pioneers. Also: experience mock train robberies, pan for gold along the banks of Rattlesnake Creek, ride the train, shop for handmade items, and visit the Nelson House and the Heritage Museum.
See six new dances, created by an international team of choreographers and performed by more than 50 dancers. Guided tours will take up to 75 people at a time to see the San Diego Dance Theater utilize the trolley’s green and orange lines as they bring viewers to two new low-income housing complexes along the route. Later, the group will be ushered to the Federal Courthouse and then to the Intercontinental Hotel.
