Music is rolling into town, literally, on Thursday, December 14 as the CP Holiday Train makes its annual visit to the Shuswap.
It’s truly a bit of holiday magic as the lights and sounds of Christmas fill the air. This year, the train decorations will be a blend of Christmas and Canada 150.
This is the 19th year CP Rail has hosted this program designed to bring cheer to communities across Canada and the United States while helping local food banks.
The event is free but people are asked to bring money and/or food donations. Please bring non-perishable items such as canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, and peanut butter. Remember to dress warmly.
The train is scheduled to roll in Salmon Arm at 8 p.m. and the show goes 8:15 – 8:45 pm by the Lordco gravel parking lot at 51 Lakeshore Dr.
Other stops include Sicamous, Silver Sand Road intersection, east of the draw bridge at 5:15 pm, (show from 5:30 – 6 pm), Canoe, 50th St. crossing 6:45 pm (show from 7 – 7:30 pm); and Notch Hill, across from the Notch Hill hall, 1639 Notch Hill Rd, 9:30 pm (show from 9:45- 10:15 pm).
All events take place on Thursday, Dec. 14.
