CP Holiday Train en route to the Lower Mainland

This year features country singer Dallas Smith, and juno-nominated the Odds.



In its 18th year, the CP Holiday train will be making its way to the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley region on Friday, Dec. 16, and Saturday, Dec. 17.

Stopping in several communities for 30-minute concerts by Dallas Smith and the Odds, funds and food collected at each stop will benefit a local food bank in the area.

In some towns, food collected during Christmastime – when organizations see huge increases in donations – can give food banks enough of a boost to last into the spring.
