What a huge thrill it is for Shooting Star Amusements to join forces with the great people of Trail.

2016 Will Be Bigger and Better Than Ever

The Trail City Council, which is a generous donor to the annual Trail Silver City Days, will be running the event in 2016. This is huge news, also, because the event will only get better as expressions of interest are encouraged from all groups in the community, including non-profits.

Said Trail’s Mayor, Mike Martin, “Highlighting the sense of community, culture and heritage is really what we are trying to capture. And in that regard, we see a much expanded event.”


Food and Fun!

Whether you want grilled sandwiches, tacos or ice cream, Trail Silver City Days has it all. Especially now that Shooting Star will be there.  Enjoy those Carnival favorites, like the famous mini-donuts, corndogs, cotton candy, burgers and fries! Enjoy them all as you soak in the great music, dancing, and other live performances.
