Fall Color Tours at Appleumpkin Festival -
Saturday & Sunday, October 8-9, 2016
This is the Fall Color Tours train ride, except Tecumseh's Appleumpkin Festival is all around you!
Your launch point is the Tecumseh Appleumpkin Festival chock full of crafts, carnival rides, music, food carts, and lots of outdoor vendors. Enjoy the Fall Color Tours' route, with its spectacular crossing of the River Raisin. Stop over for complimentary cider and donuts from Kapnick's Orchards.
The combination of the train ride and festival makes it the most popular of our Fall Color Tour rides, and departures sell out even sooner than the rest of the Color Tours. By popular demand, we are offering dates in 2016. Watch for them, they are plainly marked! Reserve today.
DATES are October 8 and 9, 2016.
TIMES 11:00am, 1:30pm and 4:00pm. Round trip is about 2 hours.
DEPARTS from DOWNTOWN TECUMSEH at the corner of Evans St. at Chicago Boulevard (M-50), between The Quilt Path (112 N Evans St) and Tecumseh Antiques.
PARKING during the festival is throughout the downtown areas, so please add extra time to find parking and arrive at the corner 15 minutes before train departure.
TRAIN FARES: round trip $19.80 adult, $16.75 senior, $11.50 youth. Includes service fees for online advance purchase. Walkup tickets lower; phone purchase slightly higher.
2017 DATES: Appleumpkin dates in 2017 will be October 14 and 15.MOBILITY CHALLENGED persons should plan carefully before booking Appleumpkin. We'd love to have you, but it is in the middle of a street festival. Parking may be far away even with a placard. Please see our Accessibility page for more info.

Bored with Tecumseh? Here are some other Plan B's.
- Cabela's in nearby Dundee - the biggest outdoors store in the state. There's other shopping and dining in the area. Take M-50 east to US-23. It's only about 10 minutes out of your way if you're returning to metro Detroit or north.
- Kapnick's Orchards - a feast of fruits, candies and donuts. Take M-50 a mile east of Tecumseh and turn south on Rogers Highway. Go south 3 miles, it's on the left before Sutton Road.
