Wed. Dec. 5 - CPR Holiday Train

Date: Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Time: Train arrives 7:15PM; Entertainment 7:30 - 8:00PM (Terri Clark, Sierra Noble and Kelly Prescott)

Every year, the CPR's Holiday Trains travel through Canadian and American communities, raising food and cash donations for food banks.

Think of them as brightly-decorated railcars full of Christmas cheer. The Holiday Trains make stops in communities across our service area, offering free concerts and seasonal festivities from a boxcar we've turned into a travelling stage. This year we are lucky to feature the star talent of musicians such as Dallas Smith and Odds.

The concerts are free, but you're encouraged to make a donation to the local food bank—either a non-perishable food item or a cash donation. All contributions will stay within your local community.
