Everyone can ride LaSalle Transit for free from June 9 – 12.
The bus service has been enhanced during the LaSalle Strawberry Festival with free service and extended hours to match those of the festival.
One bus will run during all festival hours with final pick-ups at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex taking place a few minutes after the festival closes. In addition, bus service has also been added on Sunday. Schedules will be posted on the LaSalle Transit page on the Town’s website.
Two shuttle buses will also operate on Friday night to bring patrons to and from the festival for the fireworks. One bus will travel between Town Hall and the Vollmer Complex, and one between the old Centennial Arena site (on Front Road behind the Goodwill Donation Centre) and the Vollmer Complex. The shuttles will run between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. Parking is first come first serve in both locations. A schedule for the free shuttle service will be available soon.
The fireworks will be launched near the pond at the Vollmer Complex around 10 p.m. on Friday, June 10. The best viewing areas will be in parking lot 1 at the Vollmer Complex, at the pavilion/playground area, and on the hill behind the pavilion.
