Holiday train returning to Nelson

The CP Holiday Train will return to Nelson Dec. 14.

Singer-songwriter Jim Cuddy, his son Devin, and country singer Kelly Prescott will headline the CP Holiday Train when it returns to Nelson this month.

Two brightly lit trains will visit about 150 communities across Canada and the US to collect food and cash donations for food banks.

While there’s no charge for the show, you’re asked to bring a non-perishable food item or money. All money and food raised stays in the local community.

“The Holiday Train is an amazing expression of old-timey Canadian joy,” said Cuddy, who received the Order of Canada last month. “To be on board an old, refurbished train and travelling through the nooks and crannies of this country is an awe-inspiring experience.”

It’s the 17th year that the holiday train has rolled along the tracks and at least the third time it has visited Nelson. The show will be at the railway crossing at Lakeside Park on Monday, Dec. 14 from 6:45 to 7:15 p.m.
