Canadian Pacific Holiday Train! Is Santa The Engineer?
Hey Grandpa, gather up the kids and watch the Canadian Pacific Railroad Holiday Train!
As a fantastic good will measure, the Canadian Pacific Railroad runs this train every year making 150 stops in Canada and the United States raising food and cash donations for local food banks. Starting in 1999, the Holiday Train has raised $9.5 Million Dollars in cash donations and 3.3 million pounds of food!
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train can only stop where they own the track and therefore cannot go everywhere. The Canadian portion that the train covers includes the following providences:
The United States portion of the route includes the following states:
The Holiday Train comes with entertainment! This year’s entertainers include Award-winning country singer Kira Isabella, who took home the 2013 Canadian Country Music Association Award for “Female Artist of the Year”.
The Holiday Train rolls into a station, stops, drop the stage door on one of the box cars, and a full concert begins! Crowds gather at each stop and are encouraged to donate food and money to their local food banks. All donations stay within the community.
Canadian Pacific also makes donations at each stop as well!
