The Hop tranforming into "Le Hop" for Bastille Days
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's streetcar is taking on a French theme during Bastille Days.
For the first time, The Hop or Le Hop, will run directly through the festival which runs from July 11-14. Fest-goers can take Le Hop directly to the Cathedral Square stop, located right in the center of Bastille Days and near the festival’s iconic 43-foot tall Eiffel Tower replica.
To show off its new theme, The Hop will “French-ify” its social media presence by becoming Le Hop from July 11-14.
