Downtown Tucson will host the grand opening ceremony for the Sun Link Modern Streetcar on Friday, July 25, 2014. The ceremony will begin at approximately 9 a.m. at the intersection of Congress Street and Fifth Avenue, and is the beginning of multiple, weekend-long celebrations all along the Streetcar route. The main grand opening ceremony will conclude around 10 a.m. and free streetcar service through the weekend will begin at that time. Below is the vehicular travel restrictions associated with this event.


In conjunction with the streetcar opening this weekend, Old Pueblo Trolley has worked in cooperation with Drachman Institute at the U. of A's. downtown location to produce a window display of Tucson's Streetcar History, and to present a program on the streetcar history 4 times during this weekend.  I was hoping you might help us get the word out by sending something out to your e-mail list.
Details of the presentation are on the attached poster and here is more on the window display:
