A holiday tradition is back for another year in Fort Wayne. Holly Trolley Shopping will take place Saturday, November 24.
Eight free trolleys will transport people around Downtown Fort Wayne as well as the Wells Street and West Main Corridors. Three different trolley routes will connect them to over fifty stops with more than 100 shopping opportunities, activities and dining options to choose from.
Officials say the event is focused on small businesses, unique gifts, and a stress free environment. Many businesses along the routes will be offering special holiday items, one-day only discounts or goodies and refreshments to show their appreciation to shoppers who are choosing to shop local.
New this year, the Holly Trolley Transfer Station will be located on the Arts United Plaza at Barr and Main Streets. The Downtown Improvement District will host an information and seating area on the plaza to provide trolley maps and general information. Riders can catch a trolley for any of the three routes from this central transfer station and will also be in close proximity to great shops, activities, and dining options.
The first 200 riders will receive a free Holly Trolley commemorative gift tote provided by the Downtown Improvement District and Lake City Bank.
