On December 8th, the trolley will embark from The Holly Jolly Depot located on Court Street beside the Christmas tree every 20 minutes. There will stops at The Historic Sharpe House where you can visit Santa and tour the beautifully decorated grounds of the Pasture House and Park, and the Holiday Selfie Station at the corner of W.
