Pumpkin Patch Trolley Starts Friday October 4

Embrace the change of seasons and leap into fall with the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s annual Pumpkin Patch Trolley, which runs Friday through Sunday October 4-6, 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27.
At the event, visitors will take a ride on an antique trolley to the pumpkin patch where children get to select their pumpkin and then decorate it at our new Education & Events Room. Families can take a tour and see trolleys and enjoy other kids’ activities including complimentary refreshments and games for children. The event runs 10am to 5pm each day with the last ride to the pumpkin patch at 4:15pm.
Pumpkin Patch admission also includes unlimited rides on multiple trolleys and tours of the Trib Total Media Trolley Display Building (which houses 30 trolleys from all over the region). Displays include the photographic exhibits “Streetcar Stories of Washington County” and “Streetcar Suburbs: Linking Neighborhoods, Building Communities” as well as an introductory film on the Trolley Era. Visitors can also shop in the Museum Store. Kids can also explore play trolley car 225 and enjoy the Thomas and Chuggington play tables.
