The CPR annual Holiday Train program is considered to be the longest running fundraising program in North America. The train travels across Canada and the United States raising money, food, and awareness for food banks and hunger issues.

The Nelson Police will have a marked police truck parked in the vicinity of the show and will happily take any non-perishable food items on behalf of the Salvation Army.

Pedestrians will have free access to the site; however, barricades for motor vehicles will be set up half an hour prior to the show.

There will be a barricade with Nelson Police and reserve members set up at Gordon Street and Third Street and at Second Street and Kokanee Street.

If a police officer or a member of the train crew is directing traffic or pedestrians, please obey their directions.

The Holiday Train is about 1,000 feet in length with 14 brightly decorated rail cars.

Please be safe and vigilant around the Holiday Train and enjoy this fantastic community event.
