Founders' Day Parade

Founders' Day Cable Car Tours

Please Join Us After the Parade for a Cable Car Tour!


We are so excited to add a new feature to Founders' Day this year - history tours of Willow Glen in a cable car!  


More than just a fun ride around beautiful Willow Glen, thanks to a partnership with the Preservation Action Council of San Jose (PACSJ) these cable car rides will be narrated by PAC-SJ volunteers who have put together a wonderful tour filled with lots of historical tidbits and triva about our beloved Willow Glen.


Cable car tour rides are $20 for adults and $10 for children under age 12 (plus online Eventbrite fee).  Ride times will be after the Founders' Day Parade on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at:   12:15 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:45 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:15 pm.  Rides are expected to be approximately 30 minutes long.
