The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train returns to St. Louis Park Sunday, Dec. 10, 2017, stopping south of Lake Street. This stop is presented by The Webb Group-ReMax Results.
The festivities start at 5:30 p.m., including activities, hot food and beverages, and music by Tim Mahoney. The Holiday Train’s estimated arrival is 6:15 p.m. The concert from the train will only be viewable on the west side of the tracks. Once the train pulls in, it will not be possible to cross to the other side of the tracks.
The event is free, but attendees are asked to bring food or financial donations for the local food shelf–St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP). Hats and lighted buttons are available in exchange for STEP donations and can be found at City Hall and Citizen's Independent Bank through Thursday, Dec. 7. Any remaining buttons and hats will be available at the event. Buttons are $3 for one or $5 for two. Hats are $20 for one or $50 for three.
