FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The luck of the Irish will certainly be with the Sun Trolley as it once again participates in the annual Fort Lauderdale St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival!

"We look forward to adding plenty of green to our red and yellow trolley for the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade," said Robyn Chiarelli, Executive Director of the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association.

As the Sun Trolley travels down Las Olas Boulevard, trolley ambassadors will greet bystanders by handing out treats and treasures.
