CP Holiday Train rolls into Sudbury on Friday

Scott Helman and Madeline Merlo will be performing in Sudbury Friday night

The holiday season is around the corner, and so too is the CP Holiday Train, which is making a stop in Sudbury this Friday, Nov. 29.

The Canadian Holiday Train departed from Montreal on Nov. 26 and will make its way across Canada, wrapping up its journey in Vancouver on Dec. 17.

Performing free concerts from Montreal to Calgary are Toronto singer-songwriter Scott Helman and British Columbia country musician Madeline Merlo. CP Holiday Train favourite Terri Clark will join the train in Calgary.

The Holiday Train has raised more than $15.8 million and collected 4.5 million pounds of food since its inaugural journey back in 1999.

The train is expected to pull into the VIA Rail train station on Elgin Street in Downtown Sudbury at around 8:50 p.m. on Nov. 29, with performances starting at around 9:15 p.m.

Shows are free, but those planning on attending should head downtown early, as the Sudbury Wolves play at home Friday evening and parking will be at a premium.
