Trolley hop to visit fun family events in South Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The New Cut Trolley Hop will be back in action with free service on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The trolley hop explores attractions in South Louisville and this Saturday it runs in correlation with two special events: Forest Fest '13 and Walk with a Doc. Riders can enjoy bluegrass music in Jefferson Memorial Forest and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle at those stops.

"May is a great month to ride the trolley if you want a nice way to go to Forest Fest ‘13," said Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13). "This month, Iroquois Park will kick off the new Walk with a Doc program and Health Fair which is a healthy way to start off your weekend."

The trolley will also visit Louisville Landmark the Little Loomhouse and the Fairdale Library book sale, along with other landmarks, restaurants and places to shop.

You can board the trolley at any designated TARC or trolley stop between Iroquois Amphitheater and Jefferson Memorial Forest.

The New Cut Road Trolley is sponsored by Neighborhood Development Funds provided by Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and Council Members Marianne Butler (D-15), Rick Blackwell (D-12), Cindi Fowler (D-14), Dan Johnson (D-21) and David Yates (D-25).
