'Cruising the South Cape' trolley event this Saturday

June 7, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The South Cape Hospitality & Entertainment Associations will present "Cruising the South Cape," taking attendees to 10 "ports of call" on Saturday, June 10, from 7 to 11p.m. to enjoy drink and appetizer samples.

And someone will win a 7-Day Caribbean cruise for two, with taxes and port fees paid, courtesy Celebrity Cruises and Cruise Planners - Kristi Sharp, Agent.

"An expected 1,200 people will get to sample 'local fare' inspired by some great locations," said SCHEA Executive Director Donna Meola in a prepared statement. "Ports include Italy, Colombia, Cozumel and Key West."

Exclusive trolleys take guests to each location, and will make a special stop at the official photo booth. Here, people can capture a memory of the evening, as well as enter the Best Dressed Photo Contest.

"We're asking guests to dress up for the 'cruise'," Meola says. "The photos will be posted on Facebook, where people can vote for their favorites. Then, the SCHEA board will pick the winner of $100 cash."

To enter the grand prize drawing, guests must have their passports stamped at each location (no additional purchase necessary).

Attendees can also win small prizes, like swag and gift cards to local places, by answering fun trivia questions on the trolleys.

Tickets for the event are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the event. They can be purchased online via Eventbrite and at participating locations. A limited number of designated driver tickets are available for $20 only at BackStreets Sports Bar. Designated drivers get all the benefits, except they will not be served any alcohol. Instead, they can request a non-alcoholic beverage (typically bottled water or soda) at locations.
