PRT Tour of Lights Scheduled for Dec. 14 and 15


Pocatello and Chubbuck’s resident Clark Griswolds are going to be showcased December 14 and 15.

At 7 p.m. on both days, Pocatello Regional Transit will host its 30th Annual Tour of Lights. The drive highlights the best-of-the-best of the two cities’ holiday decorations.

“Year after year, residents continue to put up displays that make the tour special,” said Dave Hunt, Pocatello Regional Transit Director. “What started as a little something to spread some Christmas cheer has blossomed into a tradition.”

The tour takes off from Pocatello City Hall promptly at 7:30 p.m. and returns around 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3.50 for children ages 8 and younger, and free for toddlers who are able to sit on a parent or guardian’s lap. Tickets can be purchased at PRT’s Transit Center, 5815 South 5th Avenue, starting December 1 and must be purchased at least one day prior to the desired day. Potential riders are encouraged to get their tickets early as the event has been known to sell out.

“We’ve seen carolers stationed outside of homes, residents handing out candy, and others have even donned Santa suits to greet riders,” Hunt said. “Our drivers get into the spirit as well, sometimes leading their bus in the singing of a few songs.”

The tour will also accommodate groups and special arrangements can be made by contacting Pocatello Regional Transit at 208-234-ABUS (2287) or via email at
