🚎 **Convenient Transportation**: The trolley, wagon, and hayrides will stop at Main and Goodyear and Crosby Commons so that you can explore all the areas with Christmas cheer with less walking! (The rides will not be on Canal St. this year, so foot traffic will not be burdened.)
This enchanting evening allows you to choose your own adventure. Start at Crosby Commons, explore City Hall, and end your journey on Canal Street—or mix and match to your heart's content!
Let's make this holiday season unforgettable together! 🎅🎁🌟
