Next we'll drive through towns like Dublin and Upper Arlington to see their downtown lighting displays before being driven to downtown Columbus with another drop at the Scioto Mile. Here you'll see the thousands of decorative lights and holiday decor illuminate the Scioto Mile and Bi-Centennial Park. After the Scioto Mile, we'll cruise by the State House and Capital Square to see the beautiful holiday decorations of downtown Columbus.

Finally, after soaking in the urban winter wonderland, we'll head back and be dropped off at the Short North Pint House to rave about all the seasonal sparkles we just saw.

How many people fit on a trolley? Can you rent the entire trolley or do a private event?

Yes! Each trolley can fit 26 customers. If you are interested in learning more about a private event please e-mail benefitzco@gmail.com with approximate number of people and the date you would like to do the tour. You will hear back within 48 hours with availability and pricing. Trolley rental is extremely limited, but the same tour can be done for a private group on a party bus. 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, this event is 21+. All customers must come with a valid 21+ ID. 

I am a vegetarian, is there a food option for vegetarians?

Yes, there will be vegetarian pizza optons as well as house salad. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring your ticket (either printed or electronic) and your ID with you to check-in. 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches teh name of the attendee. 

Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?

You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name). 

I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?

Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event. 

Are we allowed to drink on the trolley?

Yes! The event is BYOB and you are allowed to drink on the trolley. We will have cups provided as you are not to drink out of glass on the trolley.

What time should I arrive for the event?

Check-in will begin at 5:30pm. If you arrive early, that's fine, but we will be set-up and ready to begin check-in at that scheduled event start time.

Where do I park for this event?

The Hubbard Garage located on Hubbard and Pearl is just a short block from Pint House. There is also a valet on Hull Aly. The valet is $5 for an evening and the garage is roughly $1 an hour.
