This Saturday, June 16th is the first of many Uptown Trolley Days!

Trolleys with neighborhood tour guides will be running from 9:00am to 2:00pm through the Uptown area with two stops in each business district (Eastown, East Fulton, East Hills & Wealthy Street) and the Fulton Street Farmers Market. The open air trolley can handle up to 30 riders at a time and it's free to ride. This is a great opportunity to learn about Uptown's history, from neighborhoods to business districts.
