    First Annual Molley the Trolley on North Flatbush Avenue
    Molley the Trolley is a holiday trolley with Santa and offered as a free service for shoppers to help celebrate the holiday season, and a chance for the children to have a visit with Santa. The trolley will be making many stops along North Flatbush Avenue, both sides of the street, from Bergen Street to Park Place. Hop on, hop off. You will know when the trolley is coming, just listen for Santa’s sleigh bells. Molley the Trolley will begin on the corner of Prospect Place and Flatbush Avenue on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 12:30 pm.
