Polar Bear Express tickets go on sale Saturday morning

Get ready to buy your tickets for the Polar Bear Express.

Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 online. They cost only $2 for all ages.

For those who don’t go online, a limited number of tickets will be held back for sale from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6, at the Mining Days Community Building in King Jack Park.

Streetcar No. 60 will become the Polar Bear Express on three nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) for three weeks after Thanksgiving. That means ticket purchasers have rides on nine nights to choose from.

  • Nov. 30 – Dec. 2
  • Dec. 7 – Dec. 9
  • Dec. 14 – Dec. 16

A Hollywood Holiday is the theme this year.

There is one change for the city’s holiday schedule. Instead of turning on the lights in King Jack Park on Thanksgiving night, there will be a Mayor’s Park Lighting Extravaganza at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25.
