St. Joseph's Day Swallows Train Tour
Thanks to the Muckenthaler Cultural Centerknown affectionately as the Muckyou can witness the city of San Juan Capistranos claim to fame: the return of the cliff swallows from their annual migration. Every year, the little birds take a winter trip to Argentina, and every spring, theres a huge celebration welcoming them home. The St. Josephs Day Train Tour gathers first at the Fullerton Depot, from which youll travel by rail to Mission San Juan Capistrano and receive a tour of the Los Rios Historic District and its various museums. Shopping, lunch, a private tour and even admission to a festival in commemoration of the swallows homecoming are included. And a bonus: This all goes down on St. Josephs Day, the principal feast day named after the husband of the Virgin Mary. Sweet.
