Contact: Phil Lupsiewicz, 978-275-1705
Families can join a Park Ranger for a free round-trip ride aboard the Lowell National Historical Park Trolley. The Trolley Express departs from the Boott Cotton Mills Museum on Saturday, November 29, 2008 at 12:00 and 1:00. While riding the rails, listen to a reading of the classic children’s story by Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express. At the end of the line, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies and receive a special Trolley Express remembrance. With limited seating, reservations are required. To make your reservations, call 978-970-5000.
The Trolley Express is presented in conjunction with Lowell’s annual “Holiday Stroll,” and City of Lights Parade when families can partake in numerous other holiday fun events and activities as the downtown comes to life for the holiday season. New this year is the Holiday Art Stroll which winds through the numerous art studios and galleries in downtown from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. The City of Lights Parade begins at 4:30.
