Take a spooky ride this Saturday…on a trolley? Yep, a trolley!

From11am to 3pm, you’ll be able to ride one of Yakima Valley’s Halloween Trolleys. There will be treats, “spooktacular” fun and a “freak” pumpkin for the first 100 kids. If your kiddo (like mine) isn’t quite ready for a haunted house, this is great alternative.
