CP Holiday Train
Friday 07 December 2018, 07:00pm - 10:30pm

Bring the whole family out for an evening of fun! Community events start at 7 p.m. and include wagon rides, winter activitites, bonfire, hot chocolate, and more!

The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than C$14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP's routes in Canada and the United States. Every pound and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community. 

The train is making a stop in Gleichen (field adjacent to CP track along Railway Street at 2 Avenue) at 9:55 p.m.. It will be a 20 minute stop-and-go with the train departing at 10:30 p.m..

Sierra Noble
Winnipeg singer-songwriter Sierra Noble has been a part of the Canadian music scene since a very young age, beginning her touring career when she was only 14 years old as a solo Old-time fiddle player. Her evolution as an artist brought her to a journey of singing and songwriting debuted by a song called “Possibility” which went on to be featured on television shows such as “One Tree Hill” and “Switched at Birth”.
