Due to demand from the South Country community, the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be adding a stop in Jaffray to its schedule.

The 13th annual holiday train will now be pulling through Sparwood, Fernie and Jaffray on December 11.

“By special request from the community, the train will be doing a ‘Stop’n’Go’ in Jaffray, which is basically a 15 minute stop with a five minute show off the tail end of the train,” said Mike LoVecchio, Canadian Pacific spokesman.

“These small shows are actually really cool and unique so I hope people in the South Country enjoy it!”

Come out to enjoy the entertainment, and support the local food banks.

Since its launch in 1999, the Holiday Train has raised close to $5.6 million and 2.5 million pounds of food for North American food banks.

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 talents 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.

 

• Sparwood – 3:35 p.m. MT, 367 Pine St., behind Leisure Centre

• Fernie – 5:15 p.m. MT, behind CP Train Station, 700 – 1st Ave.

• Jaffray – 7:15 p.m. MT.
