I didn’t realize how much you could do on the Harriet Como Streetcar and the Excelsior Streetcar during Halloween. I have only included the family friendly ones and not the super-spooky-I’m-going-to-sleep-with-the-lights-on events. But you can go to their website to get that information.
Como Harriet Street Car Line

Farmer Ken’s Pumpkin Patch
12:30 PM TO 4:30 PM
Ride fares are $2 and Pumpkins are $3. They put together trolleys and pumpkins for maximum fun!
Friday, October 18 and 25 and Saturday, October 19 and 26

This us a Halloween Adventure like you’ve never had before. Actors ride the streetcar with you, you experience part of the ride in the night, and you should expect it to be a little bumpy. The ride is 20 minutes and may not be suitable for young children but is declared a family favorite. There will be a moderately long wait to board.
Saturday, October 26
12:30 PM to 4:30 PM
On this silly 15-minute trip, you will be hosted by Count Kart, the Vampire Motorman. You will please him very much if you wear a costume and he will reward you with a treat.
Sunday, October 27
1:30 PM, 2:30 PM, and 3:30 PM
$5 per passenger
We mentioned the Trick ‘r Trolley ticket raffle earlier this fall. You were able to score those tickets, this is what you will be enjoying: a streetcar ride, a story by a children’s author, and a Halloween treat bag. Plan for the Trick ‘r Trolley to be about 45 minutes.
It’s the Son of PJ Party! We’ll take a streetcar ride and stop for a story from a noted children’s author. When we return to the station, each child receives a Halloween treat bag. The event lasts about 45 minutes. In the event of rain the event will be postponed to the following Sunday.
Excelsior Street Car Line
Friday, October 25 & Saturday, October 26
6 PM to 9 PM
$7 adults, $5 children (10 and under)
Included in this event are a variety show, a BOO-seum, spooky trolley rides, and haunted history. Go check it out and let us know what’s happening!

Trick r’ Trolley
$5 per person available for purchase at Excelsior Bay Books (36 Water Street). This is perfect for younger children. Ride the trolley, listen to a story, and get a Halloween treat.
I have not been to any of these Halloween events, so if you go, we would appreciate any feedback you are willing to give here or on our facebook page.
