IDAHO FALLS – Finish your Christmas shopping in downtown Idaho Falls this Saturday with a horse-drawn trolley ride.

Trolley rides began earlier this month, but this is the final weekend you can experience it. It’s happening from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Pick up and drop off is across from the Civitan Plaza in the southeast corner of Park Ave. and B Street. All rides are free.

And if you still need some gift ideas, John Groberg and his wife, Jean, will be at the downtown Deseret Book location for a book signing.

Groberg is an 85-year-old resident of Idaho Falls who served a three-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the 1950s. While there, he experienced many hardships, including rats eating calluses off his feet and nearly drowning when his boat capsized during a storm.

He has written several books about his experiences. The 2001 Disney film “The Other Side of Heaven” depicts his story. A sequel, “The Other Side of Heaven 2: The Fire of Faith,” was released this summer.
