Which Saturdays should SunRail run?

With the exception of Nov. 5th, the private-public Team SunRail partnership has yet to post a full calendar showing which Saturdays SunRail will run.

So we thought we would help them by making our own #SaturdaySunRail suggestions:
Saturday, Nov. 12. The Come Out With Pride festival – postponed from Oct. 8th – is scheduled to be held at downtown Orlando’s Lake Eola. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the event that celebrates our LGBTQ community.

Saturday, Nov. 19. The Florida Classic annual football showdown between Florida A&M University and Bethune-Cookman University – two of America’s best known Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The game at downtown Orlando’s Camping World Stadium (formerly known as the Citrus Bowl) and surrounding events draw nearly 100,000 annually.

Saturday, Nov. 26. Small Business Saturday is traditionally held the Saturday after Thanksgiving and it’s intended to spotlight small businesses that are the backbone of the U.S. economy. There are hundreds of small businesses you can reach by getting off at SunRail stations at Sand Lake Road, Church Street, LYNX Central Station, Florida Hospital, Winter Park, Maitland, Altamonte Springs, Longwood, Lake Mary and Sanford. Many small businesses have special offers for customers on Small Business Saturday.

By the way, on Nov. 5th Camping World Stadium will be hosting the Electric Daisy Music Carnival. Hard for us to describe this event that features music, amusement park rides, costumes and lots of people.
Hope to see you on The Rail.
