Pumpkin Patch Trolley
September 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 16, 2022
Join Seashore Trolley Museum in beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine for our 24th Annual Pumpkin Patch Trolley, which will be held on Friday/Saturday/Sunday September 23-25, September 30-October 2, October 7-10 (includes Indigenous Peoples’ Day) and new this year, October 14-16. The event will be held outdoors, rain or shine.
Rides to the pumpkin patch depart from our Visitors Center at 9:45AM,10:30AM, 11:15AM, 12:00PM, 12:45PM, 1:30PM, 2:15PM and 3:00PM. This event has been re-imagined again this year to give families a pandemic-conscious experience. Most of the activities will take place outdoors (except the craft) and pumpkins will be physically distanced at the pumpkin patch. A limited number of tickets is available for each ride time to ensure the event doesn’t become overcrowded.
Pumpkin Patch Trolley is the perfect 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!
Back at our Visitors Center we will have fun activities to enjoy!
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 (in a socially distanced circle); 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 baked fresh by Hannaford (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 2023 Seashore Family Membership!
Enjoy our Museum! Explore three carhouses filled with beautiful, restored trolleys and several other precious transit artifacts around our outdoor campus!
Costumes are Encouraged at our event! We will be giving out prizes each day for Best Costume.
If the weather isn’t “sparking joy” the day you have purchased tickets to attend, please be encouraged to transfer your tickets to another Pumpkin Patch date, using Eventbrite. Tickets are non-refundable after the last date (October 16th)
