The Wichita Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau needs your help! It’s time to Name The Trolley!

OK, first things first, the trolley isn’t exactly new. We’ve had it for about five years already; we just never quite got around to naming it. That’s where you come in. If you’ve got the winning name, you’ll win a private Wichita Falls Christmas Lights tour for up to 30 people!

Before you pick a name, here’s a little background on our trolley. It was made by the Hometown Trolley Company in Crandon, Wisconsin. They specialize in handmade, nostalgic trolleys with modern engineering and serviceability and have several styles to choose from, ours is the Mainstreet. Buyers have several options and choices to customize their trolley, among other details, we 'blinged' ours out with the official Wichita Falls Blue paint color to match our “Blue Skies, Golden Opportunities” motto.

While our trolley is five years old, it is just getting started. Our friends at the Convention and Visitors Bureau tell us the last two trolleys we had were in service for twenty-six years! I’m not sure exactly what happened to them, but just maybe retired trolleys get to be extras in Cars movies …

I asked one of my coworkers what he would name the trolley and he instantly said, “Trolley McTrolleyface.” I bet you can do better than that.

Give it some thought, then follow the link and submit your Name The Trolley idea before 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 30th. The winner will be announced on the Wichita Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau Facebook page at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 1st.

Yes, our soon to be named trolley can be rented, Lindsay Greer, the Director of Sales and Marketing at the MPEC will be happy to give you all of the details.
