Holiday Train Toronto

Festive holiday train will light up Toronto this month

A Canadian Pacific railway train covered in Christmas lights will be chugging through the GTA this month to celebrate the holidays while raising awareness for hunger-related issues in Canada.

The Holiday Train will not only make its way from coast to coast, but it'll also be a part of events along the way including free concerts at which folks are encouraged to bring "healthy and nutritious foods" to support local food banks.

The performing artists include Dallas Smith, Odds, and Jonathan Roy. As far as local stops go, the train will make an appearance at 750 Runnymede Road on November 28 as well as in Oshawa and Vaughan. It's the 18th edition of the Holiday Train run, which kicks off in Montreal.

Here's a full breakdown of stops in the Toronto area this year:

  • 680 Laval Drive, Oshawa - Monday, November 28 at 3:05 p.m.
  • 750 Runnymede Road, Toronto - Monday, November 28 at 8:15 p.m.
  • N.W. corner of the CP Crossing at Nashville Rd, Vaughan - Tuesday, November 29 at 10 a.m.
