Pumpkin Patch Train departs Williams starting Oct. 5
WILLIAMS, Ariz. — It’s that time of year again when pumpkin lattes, pumpkin spice and pumpkin pie start showing up everywhere.
In addition to all things edible, perhaps the favorite pumpkin activity of all is picking out the perfect gourd to turn into a jack-o-lantern.
On Oct. 5, the Pumpkin Patch Train departs for a secret pumpkin patch, only accessible by train, where passengers can enjoy a unique 90-minute round-trip fall experience. Tickets include the cost of the train ride, one pumpkin per passenger and admission to the many Halloween-themed activities, including a kid-size maze and pumpkin arts and crafts. Fall favorites including hot cider, pumpkin pie and hot chocolate are available for purchase on the platform. There will also be a free walk-through Haunted Train Car, The Colorado Shiver.https://youtu.be/TmSaAajaVrs
