polarexpress

Let the holidays begin! It's a week of great holiday entertainment, and one of the highlights is the Polar Express in Mesa! It takes the kids on a magical ride on a light rail train that's filled with holiday decorations and merriment. Who knows, maybe Santa Claus will be there! If you can't get to it this week, don't worry, it'll also happen on the 13th and 14th.

Downtown, huge crowds are expected for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concerts at Talking Stick Resort Arena.  Like always, your ticket to the concert is good for your fare to and from the show on light rail. Moscow Ballet will perform its Great Russian Nutcracker at Comerica Theatre on Thursday, and light rail is one of the best ways to get around for the First Friday Art Walk Event!
