Anyone looking for a unique, charitable, and family friendly way to spend their holiday weekend is in luck! The nationally recognized Berks County attraction, Roadside America, plans to offer free admission for the entire weekend following Thanksgiving to any visitor who brings a toy donation for Toys for Tots. This is the second year the attraction has hosted a Toys for Tots drop box, and the first year offering free admission for donations.
Roadside America, located in Shartlesville, PA just off exit 23 of Interstate 78, is currently celebrating its annual Thanksgiving Turkey Takeover where over 250 3D printed and hand painted turkeys run amok through the iconic miniature world. Visitors over Thanksgiving weekend will also get a special sneak preview of the holiday decorations throughout the miniature village. Decorations include twinkling lights on many of the miniature buildings, holiday themed trains buzzing down the lines, and so much more. One free admission will be awarded per donated toy. There is no limit on how many toys can be donated per party, so visitors are encouraged to bring a toy for each member of their party to enjoy free admission for their entire group.
Roadside America is closed on Thanksgiving day, Thursday, November 28th. The attraction will reopen on Friday, November 29th to kick off the free admission offer which will continue through Monday, December 2nd. Aside from being closed on Thanksgiving day, the business will maintain its regular business hours throughout the weekend – 10:00am to 5:00pm on Friday and Monday; 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
