CP's Holiday Train rolls into Greater Sudbury Dec. 1.
This year, the train is scheduled to arrive at the downtown VIA Rail station (233 Elgin St.) at 8:50 p.m. and the entertainment begins at around 9:15 p.m.
Every year, the CP trains travel through dozens of communities, raising food and cash donations for food banks.
Again this year, the Holiday Train program is encouraging people attending events to bring heart healthy donations.
The two brightly-lit trains kicked off in the Montreal area on Nov. 27 and 28 on their way to visit approximately 150 communities.
The "Canadian Train" travels west across Canada finishing its journey in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. The "US Train" visits communities across the U.S. Northeast and Midwest, and returns back to Canada for shows in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
The concerts are always 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 in your community.
