On Sunday, October 2, From 12:30pm to 5:30pm, you and your family can enjoy an afternoon amid the Color and Spirit of Fall in the Whippanong Valley of Morris County, New Jersey.
Autumn is a Season of Family Fun, and the Pumpkin, the reassuring signal of seasonal passage, never fails to bring forth the image of cool nights, bright harvest moons, crackling fires, and the warmth of family and friends. And when pumpkins appear, they take on a playful appearance, alerting everyone that the special magic of HALLOWEEN, with its goblins, ghouls, and witches lies just around the corner.
On Five Spring and Fall days, you and your family can ride in a real railroad caboose for a 45-minute round trip. Trains will be departing from the Whippany Railway Museum in Morris County, NJ. You can get guaranteed tickets today when you order them online. Thanks for supporting the all-volunteer, non-profit Whippany Railway Museum!
