More tickets available for Minneapolis' Luminary Loppet

Art walk fans rejoice–more tickets are now available for the previously sold-out Comcast Luminary Loppet. This curated, candlelit walk around Lake of the Isles takes place this Saturday, January 31, and is one of the signature events in the Loppet Foundation’s City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival, which runs from Friday, January 30 through Sunday, February 1. The new block of tickets is available due to one of several tweaks to the festival resulting from the Twin Cities’ relatively mild winter thus far.
