CP's annual Holiday Train program is a rolling fundraising event that travels across Canada and the United States raising money, food and awareness for food banks and hunger issues, hosting free holiday concerts along the way.
Every pound of food and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community. Since its launch in 1999, the program has raised more than $12 million and 3.9 million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the northern U.S.
The train will be rolling through Perth on Sunday November 27th. The night starts at 6:40 pm with singing and carolling; the train is expected to pass through about 8:00 pm.
