CP Holiday Train – December

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train embarks on its three-week journey at the end of November to make its way across Canada.  Lytton has been included towards the end of the 150-community tour since the train’s inception in 1999.  The goal of the Holiday Train is to collect food and money for local food banks and to raise awareness in the fight against hunger.  At each stop, the Holiday Train rolls in decorated with brightly coloured lights, then opens up its box car doors to put on a live show on the tracks.  Communities are encouraged to donate foods and funds to the local food bank.
