The museum will be the hub for a variety of special Pumpkin Train activities including a puppet show, a magic show, a balloon artist, and live music.

Reservations are strongly recommended for this 10-mile roundtrip to the pumpkin patch, the good news is that there are plenty of great seats and times still available. Plus, they'll be offering for a "little extra fee" a chance to ride in the two dome cars attached to the Pumpkin Train Express.
