Join us for some spooky Halloween fun during our 2016 Halloween Model Train Show & Open House! Due to Halloween falling on a Monday this year, our spooky shenanigans will take place on Tuesday, October 25th, about a week before Halloween – giving parents a great opportunity for a dress rehearsal of their little one’s costumes!
Both our outdoor G&O Display and our indoor HO Display will be decked out in the Halloween spirit and open to delight visitors. We have been holding our Halloween open house for a few years now. It started out as an impromptu fun run on the G&O Garden Railway out back, and has since evolved into a full blown Halloween model train show! While a great time for all ages, we gear this event more toward the kids who just love trains and showing off their costumes as much as possible!
Kids in costume will get to practice their best “Trick or Treat!” exclamation to receive some early bird candy In our Museum, we’ll also have activities for the kids – coloring pages, puzzles, and more. We know it’s a school night, which is why we’ll be open earlier in the evening from 5:00 – 9:00 PM so you can easily attend our spooky train show and any other weekend festivities in your neighborhoods. As always, admission is free but we graciously accept donations!
We hope to see a great turnout of kids in this year’s best costumes. Do us a favor – download our color Halloween flyer or our black & white Halloween flyer and help us get the word out if you can’t make it yourself!
