CP Holiday Train coming to Saskatoon on Dec. 4
Mark Dec. 4 on your calendar if you want to see the CP Canadian Holiday Train rumble through Saskatoon.
The train, decked out in brightly coloured lights from stem to stern, begins its trek west from central Canada at the end of November, stopping in villages, towns and cities along the way.
This year, Saskatchewan’s own Colin James is scheduled to headline the entertainment part of the train’s journey across the prairies.
“Looking forward to being on the historic Holiday train again playing shows across this beautiful country. See you there,” James said in a release.
Toronto singer-songwriter Emma-Lee is also scheduled to perform.
The train is expected to stop in Saskatoon at the CP rail overpass on Seventh Avenue North.
In previous years, thousands of people clogged the area with traffic awaiting for the train’s arrival. Some waited for hours in advance, hoping to as close to the train as they could.
When it reaches Saskatoon on Dec. 4, it will already have made stops in Yorkton, Foam Lake and Wynyard.
After rumbling through Saskatoon, the train is scheduled to make several other Saskatchewan stops, including Weyburn, Regina and Swift Current, where crowds can expect to be entertained by country star Terri Clark, Dallas Smith and Kelly Prescott. Postmedia News
