All Aboard the Red River Express! Shreveport’s Best Christmas Experience Awaits!

Updated: Aug 1

While it’s not quite time to deck the halls with boughs of holly, ‘tis the season to book your tickets for the Red River Express Cruise to the North Pole, part of Plant Aqua Group's Shreveport Aquarium Christmas experience. Celebrating its second year of Christmas magic, The Red River Express cruise will depart on an enchanting journey for the “North Pole” from Nov. 29 through Dec. 22. This magical boat ride will make you believe in the spirit of Christmas, complete with hot chocolate, cookies and a very special guest!

As the 2019 P.R.I.D.E. award winner for Outstanding Event of the Year, the 45-min long holiday experience will delight both the young and the young at heart. Once aboard, the conductor will punch each guest’s golden ticket while they enjoy tasty treats, sing Christmas carols and listen to stories while making the short boat journey around the bend to the “North Pole”. Once docked, Santa will board to greet passengers and give each child a special first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh "Believe" bell.

The Red River Express departs from the Red River boat launch next to the aquarium in Downtown Shreveport at 5, 6 and 7 p.m. during the selected dates. Tickets are on sale now for aquarium SEAson pass holders and to the general public on Oct. 19. They are anticipated to sell out quickly.
