Tickets will be available online on August 1, 2021 for rides that depart our Visitors Center at 10:50 and 11:35 a.m., 12:20 p.m., 1:05 p.m., 1:50 p.m. and 2:35 p.m. Multiple trolleys will be operating during each time slot to ensure social distancing on the trolley ride is maintained.
Pumpkin Patch Trolley is the perfect socially distanced fall event for families and friends of all ages to enjoy! Board at our Visitors Center and take a trolley ride on our heritage railroad to The Pumpkin Patch. Each member in your group can select a pumpkin to take home (even the adults!)! Hop back on the trolley with your pumpkin and enjoy a 30-minute ride on our heritage railroad.
Back at our Visitors Center we will have activities to enjoy! For those who have been to this event before, this year activities will all be held on our main campus; in a “normal” year all of our activities are held at The Patch, but due to pandemic restrictions we’ll be changing it up this year!
Activities available include:
Pumpkin Painting! Paint your pumpkin at our pumpkin painting station! Leave it out to dry while you enjoy other activities. Disposable brushes will be used, and a volunteer will squirt your paint colors on a paper plate.
Craft in a Bag! Make it at the event or take it home with you!
Cookie Walk! Round and round you go; when the music stops, find a number on the ground to stand next to. We spin the wheel and if your number comes up, you win a pre-packaged cookie (or non-edible prize if cookies aren’t as exciting for your group as they are for us)! Play as many times as it takes you to win!
Photo Scavenger Hunt! Take the Seashore Challenge and go on a photo scavenger hunt around campus, using your phone to document your progress! When you’re finished, post them to one of our social media pages, and you will be entered for a chance to win a free 2021 Seashore Family Membership!
Enjoy our Museum! Explore three carhouses filled with beautiful, restored trolleys and several other precious transit artifacts around our outdoor campus!
Even though it’s a little early for Halloween, Costumes are Encouraged at our event! Why not! We will be giving out prizes each day for Best Costume.
Per Federal Guidelines, masks must be worn on the trolleys by everyone ages 5 and up.
