All aboard the York-Durham Heritage Railway (YDHR), bringing Halloween fun for the whole family! Their Pumpkin Patch & Halloween Train Ride is a classic fall activity, with lots of activities for you and your family to enjoy together, including a maze, wagon rides, special train for the kiddies, and entertainment on board. Even more exciting, the train ride includes a trip to a pumpkin patch, where each family gets their very own pumpkin to take home and remember their exciting outing.
During the celebration, you can also savour the picturesque forests and captivating fall colours from one of YDHR’s vintage trains, starting at the Uxbridge Station and returning an hour later. The train travels through the beautiful Oak Ridges Moraine, an ecologically important landform, which you can view just outside your window between Uxbridge and Stouffville.

Feel free to come dressed in your Halloween costumes and snack on food available for purchase on the grounds. Be sure to dress for the weather as this train ride runs rain or shine.
