The Famous Pumpkin Train-Coopersville, Michigan
Held on Saturdays and Sundays between September 29 and October 28, this is a fall tradition that should not be missed. See the website at www.MItrain.net for departure times and details.
The Coopersville & Marne Railway's train cars are almost 100 years old. They were built between 1919-1932 and are all decorated to celebrate the fall harvest. The Grand Pumpkin, Mr. Scarecrow and Boo-The-Cat will sing and tell jokes in your railcar during the 90-minute journey through family-owned farms and fields.
At the end of the ride, all kids go to the track-side pumpkin patch to pick their very own, locally grown pumpkin. There is nothing aboard the trains that would scare any children. It is a harvest celebration.
Have a wonderful fall season! The Laurie Zokoe Team.
