CP Rail Christmas Train Comes To Maple Ridge December 18th

Thanks to Scott Leaf for this information.

The CP Rail Christmas Train continues its cross-Canada journey into Alberta and B.C. CPR Christmas Trainon December 9 before completing its journey on December 18th, the day the train passes through Maple Ridge.

This is the 11th year that the Canadian Pacific Christmas Train has been raising food, money and awareness for food banks in communities across Canada and the U.S. To date, they've helped raise $4 million and 2 million pounds of food with our Holiday Train program.

From the initial partnership with the National Food sharing program this was a new idea formed in 1999.That December, CP began running a freight train decorated with thousands of Christmas lights across Canada, to raise awareness of the issue of hunger prevalent in all communities. In 2001, CP launched a second Holiday Train in the United States.Shaun Verrault Wide Mouth Mason

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 event, the Holiday Train provides a box car stage, a line up of great musical talent and a corporate contribution to the local food bank. The community, in turn, is encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community.

Entertainers on this train include the Odds, an alternative rock band, bringing their energy and full voiced harmonies to the Holiday Train stage for the first time. They will be joined by Shaun Verrault of the The OddsCanadian blues-rock trio Wide Mouth Mason.

Maple Ridge has long been a successful and well attended stop on the train's tour.

Maple Ridge Train Time - 7:45 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., across from the Billy Miner Pub on River Road.  Bring something for the Ridge Meadows Food Bank.

Bring the kids down to Maple Ridge's Historic Port Haney area and let the kids see Santa!
