Last year, Santa danced and turned a somersault when CP ‘s Holiday Train arrived in Toronto. He also posed for pictures (bring your own camera) and passed out a few candy canes. Who knows what will happen this year. There will certainly be live music with Valdy, the Brothers Dube, and Tracey Brown entertaining those braving the cold. The show is free and out of doors. CP hopes you will leave behind a donation of non-perishable food.

The train arrives at 6:15pm on November 29. Get there a little earlier as the crowds will be thick. It stays about 30 minutes and is Toronto’s only stop.  You’ll find it at 750 Runnymede Road in front of the CP Lampton Yard Office. Bus service runs north from Runnymede subway station. Free parking at adjacent Walmart’s underground garage.
