The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum will hold its annual Trucks, Tractors & Trolleys event on Sunday, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Visitors can see dozens of classic tractors, pickup trucks, delivery vehicles, and modern construction and commercial vehicles. Visitors can ride three different trolleys (running every 15 minutes) and tour the Trib Total Media Trolley Display Building, which houses nearly three dozen streetcars, and the Restoration Shop.
This is the third year that the museum has teamed with the Washington & Greene County Antique Tractor Association for Trucks, Tractors & Trolleys. The tractors were a popular addition to previous shows. There will also be a World War II encampment with uniformed interpreters and informational exhibits and numerous artifacts.
There will be a food and ice cream vendor on-site, and visitors can enjoy the picnic area while DJ Fritz plays a variety of music. Families can check out the East Penn Traction Club's model train display and also take advantage of the children's play area, which includes face-painting, Thomas and Chuggington play tables, and play trolley car 225.
The museum welcomes those would like to display a vehicle during the show. Pre-registration is not required and there is no fee, though contributions are welcome. Vehicles should arrive before 10 a.m., with the first 50 arrivals receiving a dash plaque. All registrants receive two complimentary tickets and will also be randomly entered to win cash prizes and museum merchandise.
Admission rates are $10 adults, $9 seniors (62+), $7 children (3-15) and free for children under 3. Admission includes all exhibits and activities; the Trolley Era introductory film and exhibits; unlimited trolley rides; a tour of the Trib Total Media Trolley Display Building; and the museum store.
