FAIRBANKS - Tickets go on sale Monday for the Nenana Ice Classic.
Now in its 94th year, the Ice Classic is a springtime tradition in which Alaskans try to guess the date and time the ice will go out on the Tanana River at Nenana.
Tickets at $2.50 apiece are sold at more than 200 locations around the state through midnight April 5.
Last year, the ice went out 8:41 p.m. on May 1. Two winning tickets shared a jackpot of $283,723.
Organizers hope the jackpot reaches $300,000 this year.
