The Red Wing Visitors & Convention Bureau is home base for festivities. The VCB is located at 420 Levee St.
The trolley started running May 1, offering service Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through June 7 and adding Thursday service June 11. After Labor Day, the service will revert to three days through October.
The trolley runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A narrative tour lasts 45 minutes, with stops all around the community. Points of interest include the Pottery District; Sheldon Theatre, St. James Hotel and the downtown area; the riverfront, Barn Bluff and Bay Point Park; and the historic preservative district, which features civic buildings and older homes.
