Baltimore Streetcar Museum's Pumpkin Patch
2014 STREETCAR PUMPKIN PATCH
Baltimore Streetcar Museum celebrated Halloween by hosting its first Streetcar Pumpkin Patch on October 25, 2014.  The day turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous late fall day ... down to the changing leaves.  Borrowing on several trolley museums' formats, the pumpkin patch was set up at the 28th Street Loop.  The visiting children, many dressed in their Halloween finery, rode a car out to the loop, disembarked and picked out their favorite pumpkin too take with them.  When they returned to the Visitors Center, decorating materials were available for them in the Auditorium to decorated their pumpkins.  As the saying goes, a good time was had by all.  Here's some pictures showing how everything was set up.
