Pumpkin Festival


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.

Walk among the Pumpkins, Corn Shocks, and Grinning Scarecrows as you enjoy the wares of local CRAFTS MERCHANTS and RAILROAD MEMORABILIA dealers at our popular PUMPKIN MARKETPLACE CRAFTS FAIR!

You'll also see a unique collection of antique Farm Tractors. The Museum has assembled a fine assortment of vintage, American-built gas-powered agricultural tractors, which help to tell the story of how the Railroads delivered the crops that fed a Nation, to market.

Trains depart Whippany at 12:30 PM, 1:15 PM, 2:00 PM, 2:45 PM, 3:30 PM, 4:15 PM, 5:00 PM

This train is sponsored by the Whippany Railway Museum and operated thru the Morristown & Erie Railway.
