For the first time, The Hop – or Le Hop, as it will be called by fest-goers July 11-14 – will run directly through Bastille Days. To show off this new theme, The Hop is "French-ifying" its social media presence by becoming "Le Hop."
You can take Le Hop directly to the Cathedral Square stop, located right in the center of Bastille Days and adjacent to the festival’s iconic 43-foot tall Eiffel Tower replica.
Rides are free courtesy of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.
Special live shows with Bastille Days performers are also set to take place at the Third Ward platform and on board Le Hop.
