Everyone loves a good halloween party, but this time you’ll have headphones on and be dancing the night away on October 31st. Upon arrival to the casino, you will receive a pair of headphones and be able to control the station you are listening to music from. Along with food, endless dancing and drinks, there will be a costume contest so dress to impress.
Pumpkin picking is the tradition around Halloween and the Streetcar Pumpkin Patch is the perfect place to do it. Grab some friends and have a great time decorating and streetcar riding. The patch will be open on October 26th and 27th from 12 to 5pm.
