The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is so amazing it almost doesn't seem real. Lights, performers, and more -- all dripping with Christmas spirit. Your kids (and your inner kid) will absolutely love the night.

Tonight's Train Stops

  • Buffalo (5:45 PM) - 612 North East 3rd Avenue
  • Annandale (7:15 PM) - West side of Downtown Park, over the Oak Avenue crossing
  • Eden Valley (8:55 PM) - State Street railroad crossing

What to Expect

The train arrives and pulls to a safe stop in front of the crowd. The stage door lowers and the band opens with its first song. After that, a brief presentation takes place with local food bank officials and other dignitaries. Once complete, the band resumes performing a mix of traditional and modern holiday-themed songs.  The whole event lasts about 30 minutes. Once the band plays its farewell show, the boxcar door closes and the train slips off to the next stop.

  • History: This is the 20th year the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will roll down the tracks.
  • Weather: With cloudy skies and temps in the mid-20s, it should be a fairly comfortable December night.
  • Before & after: Eat, drink & be merry.

This is a very family-friendly event, and your kids will lose their minds with all the lights, excitement, performers, and Santa. Bring some non-perishable food too, benefiting the local food banks.
