In November 2010 and 2011 KRVC held Holiday Shopping Shuttle events have been great community days of raffles, food tasting, wine tasting, book reading, game playing, art, fashion, great deals on jewelry, computers, gifts, live music and more! Shoppers board a special shopping bus donated by Exec-You-Van and travel to Riverdale and Kingsbridge businesses, which participate in the events as “Shuttle Hot Stops.” For instance, Staples provided parking for the bus riders, served refreshments and promoted great holiday specials; Leila’s Chocolates offered chocolate tasting; Sotheby’s Realty, Susan Goldy Realty and Cora’s Hardware held raffles; John’s Botany Bay offered Holiday Decorating Tips; The Page Turner and Someplace Special had storytelling, game playing and more for the kids; Brown’s Jewelers had a great Holiday Sale; Skyview Liquors offered wine tasting; Elisa Contemporary Art held a Meet the Artist Event; and offered Live Music; Capipets offered dog makeovers; Lloyd’s Carrot Cake offered food tasting Baby It’s You had Santa Claus for the kids and more! The Shopping Shuttle events were held the Sunday before Thanksgiving to kick off the Holiday Shopping season and to encourage shoppers to STAY LOCAL! KRVC did not hold the Holiday Shopping Event in November 2012. However, as part of the Riverdale Holiday Festival, held on December 2, 2012, KRVC hired the Bronx Culture Trolley and businesses in Riverdale and Kingsbridge participated with special mini-events. Each year, these events have captured the attention of the media.
