The "Dunedin Goes Carting!" community group is arranging Dunedin’s first Jingle Tour.
The Jingle Tour is where friends and neighbors gather with their golf carts then tour certain Dunedin neighborhoods that typically have beautiful Christmas light displays. What better way to cruise different light displays than on your golf cart in our own home town. And since the legal golf cart zone now covers about 70 percent of Dunedin, you can cover a lot of ground.
Participants are encouraged to decorate their carts, bring their families - some will even bring their dogs and dress up in holiday garb.
Since this is a first-time, informal event we are assembling the concept now. We are looking for at least one or two volunteers to help map out a best “route.” These volunteers would be asked to check out local neighborhoods in advance to find the best decorated homes, then arrange the route into a map where a large group of golf carts can safely and legally navigate with the least disruption to low-volume traffic.
Because Dunedin’s Golf Cart zones are divided in two by State Road 580, we are currently working with the Sheriff's Department to see if they would provide us one deputy’s assistance for crossing this road at a specific location at specific hours for this one-evening event.
The following details have been suggested and, depending on comments and participation, may gel into our final plans:
- Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, 7 p.m.
- Assemble at the public parking lot across from Casa Tina’s Restaurant
