The event is from 1:00 to 5:00 pm and the cost is only $100 pesos. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the cost of building a landscaped stone base for a permanent exhibit of the Model trains donated to the Shrine Club by the model builder, David Netherton. The Fiesta will feature an exhibit and running demonstration of the Model trains and David will present an interactive discussion on the history of the 1920’s Chapala to Guadalajara railroad to all who are interested.
