October 31, 2009 we held the first ever Halloween Trolley rides in Yakima! We’re not sure if it was our volunteers or the passengers who had the most fun.

Close to 300 passengers came to take part in an exciting, family-friendly Halloween activity. They were also helping to keep local history alive as 100% of revenue goes directly toward keeping trolleys rolling in Yakima.

Take a look at the photos from the event which we posted on our Facebook page (no Facebook account necessary to view the photos).

We’d also like to express our extraordinary gratitude to Wray’s Food & Drug for donating all 100 pumpkins for the event. Wray’s is a Yakima-owned grocer that believes strongly in supporting the Yakima community. We appreciate everything they do to support us and other community organizations in the area. Thanks, Wray’s!

If you missed the Halloween Trolley (or even if you didn’t) you’ll have to keep an eye on our Events page for details about the 2009 Santa Claus Trolley rides which have become an annual holiday tradition for many Yakima families.
