Team Cute Potato was introduced to the Boothbay Railway Village in August during the Day Out with Thomas the Tank Engine event. Our family was so impressed by the staff and the venue, but mostly, amazed by all the Railway Village had to offer. The village includes an eclectic mix of antique cars and trucks, trains, a one room school house and model railroad exhibit, to name a few. And nearly every exhibit offers something for little ones to try out for themselves.
So it’s not surprising that we are excited about the Railway Village’s upcoming Ghost Train. The staff promises this Halloween ride, complete with friendly ghosts and goblins, is just right for little ones ages 3-10. If your Cute Potato loves trains like ours do, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than a spooky steam train ride at dusk.

Let’s give credit to the super smart parents of Cumberland and North Yarmouth—they have some great ideas. Right after Cute Potato #2’s arrival, an army of moms from the Cumberland/North Yarmouth Family Network delivered meals to our home for a month. We were so impressed by their organization and generosity. And now, they’re hosting a Halloween costume swap at the Cumberland Congregational Church to help the local food pantry.
Costumes can be dropped off at a bin outside the Cumberland Community Nursery School (located at the church) in advance, or you can bring them along the day of the event. The swap is free with your donation of a non-perishable food item. Don’t have a costume to trade? Simply make a cash donation to the Cumberland/North Yarmouth food pantry.
The best part? Everyone wins! Your kiddos get a great new costume, and your help supports a great cause.
