Every weekend, horse-drawn trolleys will circulate through downtown making it easy to take in all of the sights and sounds of the holidays. The trolleys are free, compliments of the DVBA, and are a unique way to tour the downtown or take a scenic break while you rest your weary feet. Two trolleys will circulate on a pre-set route through downtown with four stops at Store St. at Chatham St. (in front of Capital Iron), Johnson St. near Wharf St. (in front of Willie’s Bakery), Langley St. at Bastion Sq. (across from Re-Bar), and Government St. at Fisgard St. (in front of CRD Plaza). Find the event on Facebook.
