Signature Event

HOLIDAY LIGHTS
TROLLEY TOURS

DECEMBER 15th, 16th, 22nd, & 23rd, 2023

In 2021, Council Grove Mayor Debi Schwerdtfeger approached the Council Grove Trade & Tourism Association with a big new idea. We loved it, and then and there, we set about creating our Holiday Lights Trolley Tours.

Ride our charming Trail Trolley and experience the sites, smells, sounds, and spirit of the Christmas season in Council Grove. We provide the blankets, thanks to the City of Council Grove. You bring a friend to snuggle up to and a warm jacket. Our drivers take care of the rest -- music, the perfect route, and a fun, family-friendly night.

If you want, you can even help us judge our Light Up Council Grove : Holiday Lights Contest -- ask for a form when you check-in.

Wishing you the merriest of everything in Council Grove!

Our 2023 Holiday Lights Contest official tour route...
