The Burwell Chamber of Commerce is again organizing the Trolleys to support Nebraska’s Big Rodeo (July 26-29). Residents and visitors can park and board the trolley at various locations between downtown Burwell and the rodeo grounds – with a rodeo drop-off and pick-up location near the main grandstand. Using the trolley instead of parking at the rodeo can be easier than dealing with the congested rodeo parking area, and leaves more parking space for our out-of-town guests. Visitors that ride the trolley also have the opportunity to see and visit our downtown businesses.
During the rodeo (July 26-29), the trolleys will operate on Wednesday and Thursday from 5:00-11:00 PM, Friday from 4:00 PM-1:30 AM, and Saturday from 11:00 AM-1:30 AM. The trolleys will run about every 15 minutes with stops at 11 different locations. The trolley map and listing is available at the following links, and also available at the Chamber office.
For more information about the Rodeo Trolley, please contact the Burwell Chamber of Commerce at 308-346-5210.
The Chamber’s City-Wide Garage Sales are this Friday/Saturday, June 23-24. The Garage Sale listing/map is available in this week’s Burwell Tribune, at the Chamber office, at most Burwell retail stores, or by clicking on the PDF links below.
