Trolley Museum celebrates Prelude

Seashore Trolley Museum set out to shake up its slate of events in 2013, and Christmas Prelude is no exception. With new kid-oriented activities and lots of free parking, dog-friendly Seashore Trolley Museum offers a relaxing Prelude venue for the whole family – even Fido.

The visitor center is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 6-8 and 13- 15; Friday hours are noon to 4 p.m. and weekends are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. As is traditional, there will be rides on heated streetcars from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Fridays, and from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays, and complimentary refreshments all day every day.

Kids can listen to stories read aloud on a streetcar throughout the day on both Saturdays and Sundays, and they can read stories to Trace, a licensed therapy dog, in the visitor center on both Saturday mornings.

Afternoon Christmas karaoke on both Saturdays and Sundays will be fun for all ages.

On Saturday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., an ambassador horse from Ever After Mustang Rescue will be on site to remind everyone of the historic relationship between horses and early streetcars.

The Museum Store offers a lot of new toys as well as books and collectibles.

The museum is at 195 Log Cabin Road in Kennebunkport. The full event schedule is posted on the home page at www.trolleymuseum.org.
