There’s just something about trains and Christmas that go hand in hand! The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train starts rolling into Minnesota in the next few days. Making several stops along the way, while collecting donations to local food shelves. You’ll find live music and entertainment at the stops. The train will roll into several Minnesota locations December 5th-14th. We are sharing a little early so you can check the map and get the perfect spot and date on your calendar.
What’s a Holiday Train event like?
A typical Holiday Train event goes something like this: the train arrives and pulls to a safe stop in front of the crowd. The stage door lowers and the band opens with its first song. After that, a brief presentation takes place with local food bank officials and other dignitaries. Once complete, the band resumes performing a mix of traditional and modern holiday-themed songs. The whole event lasts about 30 minutes. Once the band plays its farewell song, the stage door closes, and the train heads off to the next stop.
It’s important to keep a safe distance away from the train so we can safely continue our journey.
