Pumpkin Pickers Special @ Simpson Railroad
Oct 23 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The event starts with a ride aboard the Simpson Railroad trailer car around the loop over to the event grounds. This year events are located in our operations area to provide more space. There we will have a hay bale/straw maze to navigate thru -hopefully it is not haunted with loggers past. Grab a cup of hot cider to sip while you listen to not too scary short stories read by Area youth and literary groups. Don’t forget just before you get back on the trailer car for the short ride back stop at the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin to take home. While at the activities grounds keep a sharp eye out for trick or treat candy. Kids are encouraged to wear and show off their costumes.
