CP Holiday Train returning to Nelson next week

Train will stop at Lakeside Park railway crossing on Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m.

CP Rail’s popular Holiday Train will stop in Nelson next week.

The train, lit up with Christmas lights and featuring performers Terri Clark and Dallas Smith, will stop at the Lakeside Park railway crossing on Thursday, Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m. The concert is scheduled from 7 to 7:30 p.m.

Clark is a three-time Juno winner for Best New Solo Artist, Best Country Female Artist and Country Album of the Year, as well as a recipient of the Canadian Country Music Association’s President’s Award.

Smith was recently named CCMA Entertainer of the Year as well as Male Artist of the Year.

The train will also stop in Creston and Castlegar that day.

The primary purpose of CP Holiday Train stops is to raise money for local food banks, so admission to the event is a food or monetary donation.

The Holiday Train was last in Nelson in 2017.
