DASH welcomes Santa on Dec. 15 (Courtesy Photo)

Santa Claus is coming to Old Town. On Saturday, Dec. 15, Alexandria Transit Company (DASH) and Santa Claus invite you to join us for a fun-filled morning and free photos with Santa courtesy of Travis Houze Photography. All children will receive a special gift from Santa.

Santa will arrive on his King Street Trolley sleigh at 9 a.m. and kick the celebration off by taking a photo with Alexandria’s City Council. At noon, he will whisk away back to the North Pole to finish making toys for the good boys and girls of Alexandria. Stop by to share your magical Christmas wish with Santa.
 
As DASH’s holiday gift to you, post a photo with Santa to your social media, tag us using the hashtag #SantasTrolley, and be entered to win a DASH Pass good for one month of unlimited rides on DASH.
 
After your photo with Santa, hop on the free King Street Trolley, kick back, and enjoy your ride to Old Town’s finest shopping destinations and holiday festivities. The King Street Trolley operates daily, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day every 10-15 minutes from the King Street Metro Station to the Potomac River waterfront: Sunday-Wednesday: 11:00 a.m.–10:30 p.m. and Thursday‐Saturday: 10:30 a.m.–12:00 a.m.

DASH is sharing in the season of giving and is offering free rides to passengers who donate a new, unopened toy on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Toy donations will benefit Volunteer Alexandria’s 28th Annual Community Toy Drive and will go to making Christmas extra merry for an Alexandria boy and girl this holiday season.
