Carolyn's note: I attended the first Streetcar Celebration at Main Gate Square in January, and spent some time at the merchants in that shopping area, and saw the UA Pep Band perform with Wilbur & Wilma Wildcats dancing in the streets. Stop by tomorrow for this 2nd destination celebration, and see the modern streetcar up close, get your Friends key chain or pin, & check out the discounts.
