A grand opening ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. that day.

From Sunday through Thursday the Main Street Trolley line will operate with two trolley cars that run every 30 minutes.

On Fridays and Saturdays the Main Street Trolley line will operate with three cars and run every 20 minutes.

The trolleys will run from 6:45 a.m. – 12 a.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 12 a.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Sunday.
