Is it too early to think about holiday fun? Not if you want tickets to the City of Raleigh's Holiday Express at Pullen Park, an annual event where tickets sell out fast. Tickets are set to go on sale at 8 a.m., Monday, Oct. 17, and can only be bought through eventbrite.com. Due to an overwhelming response for Holiday Express, organizers are adding an additional night: Wednesday, Dec. 7.
The Holiday Express is set to roll into Raleigh, Dec. 1-4 and Dec. 7-11 from 4-9 p.m. nightly. Each year, children and adults enjoy this Triangle tradition as Pullen Park is festively decorated with thousands of lights and transformed into a holiday wonderland. The event is presented by Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources and the Crabtree Rotary Club with a portion of proceeds supporting Rotary charities.
Enjoy holiday lights and displays, a train ride, local entertainment, a carousel ride, crafts and a visit with Santa.
