Families welcome to celebrate Mother’s Day Downtown


FORT WAYNE — Mother’s Day Downtown, a spring celebration for families of all ages, will return to downtown Fort Wayne 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 12.

Families are invited to take a spring stroll, ride a bike or catch a free trolley that will connect them to retail locations, restaurants, attractions, activities and more.

“Mother’s Day Downtown keeps getting better and better!” said Bill Brown, president of the Downtown Improvement District. “We have so many awesome businesses and organizations who really roll out the red carpet for the community to celebrate Mom in the heart of our city. With new restaurants and retailers opening as well as new activities to enjoy, there’s always something fun happening in downtown Fort Wayne!”

New this year:

• The Allen County Public Library Plaza will serve as the Main Trolley Hub providing info, activities and more.

• For individuals with mobility needs, two CTN shuttles will provide transportation to shopping, dining and entertainment venues that are marked on this year’s guide as accessible options.

Guides which showcase trolley stops, activities and parking suggestions are available at participating business and sponsor locations. These guides will also be available online or on the trolleys the day of the event.
