Did you know Grand Rapids was named the "Jolliest City" in America?
Join us to take it all in, with a BYOB trolley ride through Grand
Rapid's seasonal attractions, lighting displays and holiday landmarks.
Head to Founders Brewing Co. (235 Grandville Ave SW) for check-in. Our
tour guides will be there to meet you with a ticket to be redeemed for
a bowl of chili (either before or after the trolley) and your souvenir
gift from us. Take your ticket up to the deli counter to get your bowl
of chili and then feel free to hang out, grab a beer or more food as
we prep for our gawker ride through Grand Rapids' yuletide lights.
**Please note: NO outside alcohol will be permitted into Founders. Our
event staff will be there to check you in and collect and store the
alcohol you bring for the trolley so you can enjoy your time at
Founders. At check-in we are providing a ticket that can be redeemed
for a bowl of chili at the deli counter, however seated space at
Founders is not guaranteed.
Bring your own beverages for the trolley, cups will be provided (wine,
beer and liquor are welcome, but we ask everyone please drink
responsibly). As soon as we board the vintage trolley our adventure
begins. We'll be whisked off on a 4 hour tour that includes all the
best holiday light displays in Grand Rapids, including The Christmas
Lite Show at Fifth Third park, and some residential displays in
surrounding areas! Then we'll cruise around the streets of downtown
Grand Rapids and see the light displays on streets and businesses

does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee.

too, but the trolley will depart promptly 1 hour after the event start
