FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – 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 you around Downtown Fort Wayne as well as the Wells Street and West Main Corridors. Three different trolley routes will connect you to over fifty stops with more than 100 shopping opportunities, activities and dining options to choose from.
Each heated trolley is equipped with docents to provide information and assist you with trolley maps, giveaways, and more. Trolley riders will enjoy beautiful decorations and holiday music.
Participating businesses will be decked out in all their holiday splendor and include: Amazing boutiques, attractions, gift shops, pop-ups, art galleries, and great holiday activities like the Festival of Trees at the Embassy Theatre, Joyeux Noel at the Old Fort, Victorian Holiday Fun at the Botanical Conservatory and more.
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.
