There may be no better way to end your summer than by attending the fourth annual Trilogy Trolley Crawl in historic Roswell happening 7-11:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18.
Tickets to the award-winning event are $40 and include an evening of festivities on the grounds of Roswell’s three historic homes: Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation.
Attendees will receive three sampler plate food tickets, one drink, live entertainment and trolley shuttles from site to site with their purchase. They will also be entered to win a trip for two to South Beach.
The event gives guests a taste of international destinations, regional cuisine, libations and special entertainment, all while staying within Roswell city limits.
“Let’s celebrate these special historic homes and these great American cities without having to leave Roswell,” said Morgan Timmis, Roswell’s historic and cultural affairs manager.
Attendees will be able to embrace their inner hippy at Barrington Hall, which will feature a decorated VW microbus, participate in a mini-Flamenco dance lesson to the beats of Nuevo Flamenco, Brazilian and Jazz on Spanish guitar at Bulloch Hall and enjoy a shrimp cocktail and salsa lessons on the Smith Plantation’s personal South Beach.
Trolleys will be running continuously to transport guests from site to site. Parking will also be available at each location, as well as at First Baptist Church on Mimosa Boulevard. Guests will have the option to begin at the destination of their choice.
“With the addition of Endive Catering and the exceptional entertainment, we anticipate a sold out crowd,” Timmis said. “People should definitely buy their tickets early.”
Tickets are available online at www.southerntriology.com or at the following outlets: Roswell City Hall – Suite 100, Roswell Cultural Arts Center, The Chandlery Gifts, Roswell Visitors Center, Barringon Hall, Bulloch Hall, Smith Plantation and Taylor Kinzel Gallery.
