The Farmers and Merchants Picnic was held annually. Area bands gathered at 10:30 a.m. and led the procession uphill to Weller's Grove for a full day of food, entertainment and games. Visitors left the station by tallyho and by foot, returning to the station after the evening dance to catch the last train home.
