The date for the 2015 Jingle Boat Express — a cruise aboard the Inside Passage with Santa Claus — has been set.

The trip will depart on Dec. 10. This year organizers have increased the number of sailings to four in order to allow more than 300 North Coast youth to take the trip. Again this year, kids on the trip will receive a goodie bag from a group of local businesses.

Based on the high demand for tickets in the past, this year Jingle Boat Express tickets will go on sale at the Civic Centre on Sunday, Nov. 22. Doors will open at 8 a.m., with ticket sales beginning at 9 a.m. In years past, tickets have sold out in minutes.

Money raised from ticket sales will be donated to the Prince Rupert Salvation Army to help purchase presents for underprivileged children in Prince Rupert.

Look for more on this story in next week’s issue of the Northern View.
