Happy Holidays!

The holly jolly Trolley brought smiles to the faces of thousands of Greater Clevelanders this holiday season during visits to these events:

  • Crocker Park Tree Lighting
  • WinterLand Tree Lighting
  • Seven Hills Holiday Parade & Celebration
  • Cleveland READS Victory Bash
  • Wade Oval Ice Rink
  • La Gran Parranda 2023
  • Season’s Greetings from Shaker Square

GCRTA will consider appearances for the 2024 holiday season in late August and September 2024. Events must be:

  • large (more than 500 people will attend; the more the merrier!)
  • free (no admission charged!)
  • public (anyone and everyone is welcome to attend)
