The CP Holiday Train rolls into Saskatoon this week.
The train is scheduled to arrive at the Canadian Pacific Railway flyover on Seventh Avenue North at the corner of Warburton Street and Seventh Avenue North on Wednesday. Musicians Scott Helman and Madeline Merlo are said to be on board to give a free concert.
City of Saskatoon crews will lock 33rd Street on Seventh Avenue at 6:00 p.m., with the train scheduled to reach the flyover at 8:35 p.m.
The train raises money for local boards in every community it visits. Other Saskatchewan stops on Wednesday’s route include Bredenbury, Foam Lake, Wynyard, and Yorkton. The train is scheduled to stop in Wilkie and Macklin on Thursday before continuing to Alberta.
The Holiday Train has raised more than $ 15.8 million and pounds 4.5 million of groceries for North American dining since 1999.
