CP Hol­i­day Train com­ing to Saska­toon on Dec. 4

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - CITY+REGION -

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
