Hopkins Columbus

Join your fellow Hopkins Columbus alumni and guests for a BYOB trolley ride through Columbus seasonal attractions, lighting displays and holiday landmarks. We'll kickoff the trip at Short North Pint House where we'll take in the decorations at the local bar while enjoying assorted pizzas, wings and salad, as we prepare for our gawker ride through the yuletide lights of Columbus.

Bring your own beverages for the vintage trolley ride and as soon as we board our adventure begins. We'll be whisked off on a 4-hour tour that includes all the best holiday light displays in Columbus. We'll drive through towns like Dublin and Upper Arlington to see their downtown and residential lighting displays! Also included will be a drive through downtown Columbus to see the State House and Capital Square with another drop at the Scioto Mile. Here you'll see the thousands of decorative lights and holiday décor illuminate the Scioto Mile and Bi-Centennial Park.

Finally, after soaking in the urban winter wonderland, we'll head back and be dropped off at the Short North Pint House to rave about all the seasonal sparkles we just saw.
