Cable Car Rides

 Join Us for an Old Fashioned Cable Car Ride to
View Willow Glen Holiday Lights


There is no better place to spend the holidays than Willow Glen!  One of the best things about Willow Glen is the festive spirit of the nearby neighborhoods with the traditional yard trees and other fun decorations.  Returning for the holidays again this year is the fun, old fashioned cable car that you can ride to view the holiday lights!

Tickets are $25 for adults and $12 for children (plus Eventbrite fees).  All proceeds from this fundraising event benefit the Willow Glen Business Association (a nonprofit 501c6 organization) to help us do other fun events and projects in Downtown Willow Glen throughout the year.   

If you have done the cable car rides before, please note that this year the location to board the cable car has changed - it will be in front of Bank of America, 1245 Lincoln.   This will be convenient to the FREE public parking available in the Bank of America lot, which is made possible by the Willow Glen Business Association.   Please see schedule of dates and times and link to purchase tickets below.  We encourage you to purchase tickets in advance to get the ride day/time that you want, as many rides sell out.  

Private charters are also available (for the 5 pm ride only) on each scheduled day for $350 (for up to 34 passengers max).  Purchase online at link below or for more information call the WGBA at 408-298-2100.

Click here to purchase tickets.  

Tickets are $25 for adults and $12 for children under 12, plus Eventbrite fees.


Please note we do NOT mail tickets.  You will receive an email confirmation from Eventbrite and your name will be on the check-in list when you arrive to board the cable car (and remember, that will be in front of Bank of America this year).    Also new this year, you do not need to enter the name of everyone in your party, all tickets (adults and children) will be under the name of the person purchasing the tickets.  

Please allow plenty of time to park and get to the boarding area at least 5 minutes before your ride time.
