Fort Wayne MLK Club again hosting Santa on Tour and Trolley Ride event

The Martin Luther King Jr. Club again will offer another longtime holiday tradition in Fort Wayne — it’s annual Santa on Tour and Trolley Ride.

The 21st annual event will take place from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, beginning at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA, 2323 Bowser Ave. Intended for children ages 2 to 12, the event is free and open to the public.

Santa on Tour offers a time of gift giving, food, holiday fun and a visit with Santa Claus, an MLK Club announcement said.

Santa will present gifts to the children, youngsters will share a small meal, and children and their families can take a trolley ride through downtown Fort Wayne to see the Christmas decorations, the announcement said.

Because the event lasts only two hours, families are encouraged to get there early, the announcement said.

Event supporters and sponsors include the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, American Legion Post 148, Peg Perego Toys, JPMorgan Chase, American Legion Riders Chapter 148, and the Renaissance Pointe YMCA.
