The CP holiday train — which left Montreal on Nov. 25 — stopped in Nelson for the 19th time Tuesday night at Lakeside Park.
The holiday train brings festive greetings to 181 communities in Canada and the United States, and encourages attendees to donate to local food banks to help those in need this holiday season.
On Tuesday, at least 700 people were in attendance in Nelson. Alan Doyle of the Great Big Sea and his Beautiful Band serenaded the crowd from a car on the train.
Since 1999 the CP holiday train has raised more than $13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes.
