CP Holiday Train will make a stop in Milton

After a two-year absence, the Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train is back on track and will be stopping in on Milton.
The train with the festive lights and decorations will be arriving at Glen Eden Ski & Snowboard Centre on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 4:45 p.m. with activities beginning at 5 p.m.
This year two trains will be traveling in Canada as well as the U.S. and will again raise money, food and awareness for local food banks in communities along the CP network.
“The Holiday Train is all about families and communities coming together to celebrate the season and help those in need,” said Keith Creel, CP’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to be back out on the rails and in our communities, taking these two beautiful trains across our network and sharing the joy that comes with gathering in the spirit of giving.”
Aside from the sights, the Holiday Train is also about the sounds and in Milton the music will be provided by Lindsay Ell and JoJo Mason.
The event is free to attend, but CP asks attendees to bring a cash or non-perishable food donation if they’re able. Local food shelves will set up collection stations at each event, with all donations made staying with the local food bank to help people in need in the community. Because local food shelves buy food at a discount, cash donations can go further than food donations to help those in need.
Since the Holiday Train program launched in 1999, it’s raised more than $21 million and collected five million pounds of food for community food banks across North America.
