The CP Holiday Train is once again rolling through Winnipeg to spread Christmas cheer and collect food donations for Winnipeg Harvest.

Decked out in thousands of lights and a state-of-the-art performance stage, the train will make a stop in the city on Wednesday, December 5.

Children wishing to see it may need to get permission to stay up late that night, as the train won’t arrive in Winnipeg until 9:15 p.m.

It will make the usual stop on Molson Street between Panet Road and Munroe Avenue.

Entertainment this year includes Doc Walker, Miss Emily and Brothers Dube.

Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for Winnipeg Harvest, who will be on site collecting donations.
