A shop and hop is happening this holiday season. A trolley will be offering free rides around downtown Winston-Salem on Saturday, Nov. 25 — known as Small Business Saturday.

Between the hours of 12 and 6 p.m., customers can get wristbands from participating local businesses that have a Small Business Saturday flyer in their storefront. Shoppers can then ride the trolley from one end of downtown to the other, getting on and off at four stops along the way. Children can write a letter to Santa at Barcelona Burger Bar and send it to the North Pole by way of a special mailbox.

The new event is a collaboration between the Small Business Center at Forsyth Technical Community College and the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership. The goal is to give families a fun way to shop small this holiday season.
