Melrose Trolley Tour



Last Saturday, the City of Melrose held it's annual Trolley Tour, just one of the events of the Home for the Holidays weekend. The Trolleys run for most of the day taking riders to various venues in the City. Businesses host special events and open houses. There's lot of food and fun activities.

This year Victorian Carolers strolled the downtown area.



The heart of the City had a holiday feel. Victorian lightposts were decked out with wreaths
and snow was predicted for the afternoon.



The trolley made it's way to a stop.



Children made ornaments at one of the venues.



White Christmas punch for the trolley riders.



A piping hot cup of chowder or chowdah as we say in Boston hit the spot on a cold, windy day.



Our four legged friends enjoyed the tour too.

Home for the Holidays is the perfect family event and a great kickoff to the holiday season.
Melrose has a lot to offer, fabulous restaurants and shops. There's something for everyone!

I really miss activities like that when I see them on the blogs. We just don't seem to have much going on here. It's a shame but it seems most people around here don't want to put out the extra effort to organize things. I use to do work on projects like house tours, etc.; but now being over 70, I've slowed down a lot. Guess it is just as much my fault as anyones's. I'm glad I get to enjoy things through the all the blogs like yours. Have a great weekend. Sally
