The Wintergreen Express is on track once again and will be held on two weekends in December.

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.
