Daniel, If you park at any of the lots listed (like the Senior Center or Recreation Center) you can flag down the Trolley. Also, the exact trolley route is shown in a thick black line on the pdf attached to the article. There you can see where the trolley will be driving to and from the event. - Cherlene
