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!
