Holly Trolley Shopping
Saturday, November 29, 2014
11 am - 5 pm
The Downtown Improvement District is pleased to announce the return of its popular Holly Trolley Shopping Day on November 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Families can explore the Festival of Gingerbread, Festival of Trees, Festival of Trains, Christmas at The Old Fort and many other great activities, all while being connected to dozens of locally owned shops to find just the right gift for that special someone on your list.
Downtown makes shopping local easier than ever with this day of free trolley rides.  Many of the businesses along the trolley route will be offering special holiday items, one-day only discounts or refreshments giving shoppers even more incentive to support locally-owned retailers and specialty gift shops.
With so many stops, two trolley routes (a red line and a green line) will overlap so shoppers won’t have to wait more than 20 minutes between trolleys.  Shopping guides with maps will be available on the trolleys and will be posted on our website.  Simply park in a garage or lot near your favorite destination, wait at a trolley stop sign and jump aboard for a fun day of unique gifts and discovery in Downtown Fort Wayne!
