Gear Up for the Holiday Season with Santa Claus Trolley Rides in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - Believe it or not, Christmas is a little over a week away and if you're not in the holiday spirit yet, well there's plenty of events going on to help you out, including the Santa Claus Trolley rides in Yakima this weekend. 

For only $3 for kids and $5 for adults, you can enjoy a ride on a vintage trolley, dating back to 1928, with Santa and an Elf. 

Executive Director, Karl Pasten says they had over 300 kids ride the trolleys last weekend and he hopes more families will take advantage of the fun attraction.

"We're probably the biggest secret in town, as far as something that families can do inexpensively. What we want to do is get the word out to everybody because once somebody rides our trolley, they come back," said Pasten. 

People can also check out the Electric Railway Museum, which has the original, heavy duty General Electric motors that powered the trolleys 100 years ago. 

The trolleys depart at S. 3rd Ave. & Pine St. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
