  • Photo Outing – Naperville Trolley Tour to photograph holiday lights – Wednesday, Dec 3 – Join MAPS and board a trolley in Naperville for a one hour ride from 5:00-6:00 pm that will include 3-4 stops at beautifully decorated homes. At each home, we will stop, get out of the trolley and have a 15 minute shoot to capture the stunning holiday lights. After the trolley ride, those who wish to can stroll down the nearby Naperville Riverwalk for even more photographic opportunities. The trolley will hold 20 people, so the seats will go on a first-come basis to the first 20 registrants. The cost for this outing is $10.00. To read more and sign up visit our Photo Outings page.
