Join York-Durham Heritage Railway (YDHR) at their Pumpkin Patch Family Fest & Train Ride for a family-friendly Halloween activity. There are lots of activities for you and your family to enjoy together this Fall, including train hay rides in an open-air baggage car, hay mazes, jumping castles, and even a petting zoo! 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.

You can ride comfortably in one of YDHR’s vintage trains to and from the Town of Uxbridge. 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. Savour the picturesque forests and captivating fall colours (Mother Nature permitting, of course). The trip starts at the Uxbridge Station and returns an hour later without passengers disembarking en route.

Tickets are only $24.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids! Be sure to dress for the weather as this train ride runs rain or shine. Note: there is no onsite parking available but there is public parking nearby.
