Nov 27, 2018 5 years ago

This December we're helping to celebrate the holidays at Trolley Portal Gardens!

On Saturday, December 22nd h we're teaming with SEPTA, the University City Arts League, and Trolley Car Station on a festive day of fun! From 10 AM to 5 PM, kids ages 4-16 can ride for free (with paying adult) on a holiday trolley from 40th Street to Dilworth Park. The trolley will depart approximately every 30 minutes. SEPTA will also bring the first place and people's choice winners of their Holiday Bus Decoration contest to Trolley Portal Gardens for visitors to explore and snap pictures with. Trolley Car Station will offer $1 hot chocolates or $5 spiked hot chocolates (21+) plus grab-and-go treats. Want to get crafty? From 2-4 PM, the University City Arts League will help you make your own painted coasters, a fun (and free!) project for all ages and skill levels.  

On Friday, December 21st we're organizing an event to celebrate the winter solstice! Join local Relâche Ensemble and UCD as we bring to life Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night on the streets of Spruce Hill. Participants will gather at 5:45 PM at the Trolley Portal Gardens (40th St and Baltimore Ave), and the procession will begin at 6 PM. Dress warmly for the walk, and bring your portable speakers, your phone, or even a full speaker system in a wagon, to help us serenade the neighborhood. Stop by Trolley Car Station after for food and drink specials! Learn more and download the music here  

We hope you'll join us for these fun events! Stay tuned for more fun activities at Trolley Portal Gardens.
