UNDATED - The holiday train will be making its annual trip through central Minnesota Monday evening.

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will stop in Buffalo at 5:45 p.m., Annandale at 7:30 p.m. and in Kimball at 8:55 p.m.

The headline performer this year is country music star Terri Clark. Once the train arrives in town the stage door lowers and the band performs a song.

There will then be a brief presentation with local food bank officials, and then the singers resume performing a mix of traditional and modern holiday-themed songs. The whole event lasts about 30 minutes.

It is free to attend but you're asked to bring healthy food or monetary donations for the local food bank. All donations stay in the community where they're collected.

The holiday train is 14 brightly decorated rail cars. Since 1999 the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train has raised more than $13 million and four million pounds of food for North American food banks.
