Trolley rides

Want to horse around with your sweetie on Valentine's Day?

You're in luck then because the Downtown Goldsboro Development Corporation is sponsoring free horse-drawn trolley rides downtown from 4-7 p.m. Monday.

People can get aboard the trolley at Goldsboro City Hall and ride a loop around Center, Walnut, John and Mulberry streets. The trolley will stop at two locations, allowing people to stop to shop or eat dinner and then get back on.

Rides will be available on a first-come, first served basis.
