On the return trip, enjoy a stunning sunset over the bay as your train returns to Garibaldi. Several stops will be made for the purposes of photography and a boxed lunch is served onboard. Space on this incredible experience is limited to only 120 riders and it is virtually guaranteed to sell out. Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad

Garibaldi Crab Races
A small-town tradition not to be missed. Where else can you see human participants yell, shout,clap and use psychic powers (as long as they don't touch the crabs) to cajole their favorite crustacean over the finish line. As for the Dungeness, well, they may be found in one of the specialty dishes served up for the folks who come just to eat, drink local brews and wine and have fun watching this hilarious spectacle.The Crab Races are held to raise funds for the Garibaldi Lions Club, a civic organization that works to provide low-cost vision care for low-income citizens in the area. See the website for the most current updates.
