Holiday Train coming to Milwaukee this weekend


​​​​​Don't miss the festive lights and live excitement of the CP Holiday Train as it makes six stops in southeast Wisconsin December 2nd and 3rd, 2017.

Two CP Holiday Trains embark from Montreal, Quebec in late November, bringing holiday cheer to communities across Canada and the United States. Since 1999, the trains have raised more than $13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along its routes.

The Holiday Train is about 1,000 feet in length with 14 brightly decorated rail cars. Each car is decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED lights and holiday designs.

At each stop, after the illuminated train arrives and pulls to a safe stop in front of the crowd, the stage door lowers and the live music begins. This year, fans will enjoy performances of holiday themed songs by Terri Clark, Dallas Smith and Kelly Prescott. There will also be a brief presentation with local food bank officials and dignitaries. Once the band plays its farewell song, the stage door closes, and the train heads off to the next stop. Each stop lasts about 30 minutes.

Each event is completely free, and attendees are encouraged to bring monetary or healthy food bank donations to help alleviate hunger in their own local community.
