Wintergreen Arts Center and Katahdin Trust are partnering once again to bring this magical holiday journey. Families may choose from the following four evenings to take a ride on the magic trolley:  Friday, December 7, Saturday, December 8, Friday, December 14, and Saturday, December 15, 2018.

With the purchase of a $10 roundtrip golden ticket, each passenger climbs aboard Presque Isle Historical Society’s Molly the Trolley which is magically transformed into THE WINTERGREEN EXPRESS.  As the conductor punches tickets, riders enjoy a special holiday trip to the North Pole (Wintergreen) where Santa’s Elves serve hot cocoa and sing songs.  Everyone gets to decorate sugar cookies, visit with Santa, and take home a jingle bell souvenir.

Tickets go on sale Monday, November 19, at 12:00 NOON.  Tickets are available online at, click on WINTERGREEN EXPRESS TICKETS,  Tickets are also available over the phone at (207) 762-3576, or at Wintergreen’s 149 State Street location in Presque Isle.
