Holiday Train coming to Ashcroft

The CP Holiday Train will be in Ashcroft on Dec. 16, along with entertainers Valdy and Tracey Brown.

The 2011 CP Holiday Train will again feature music for everybody as it raises money, food and awareness for local food banks.

Canadian music legend Valdy will be on board this year with Canadian Country Music Hall of Famer and long-time Holiday Train favourite, Tracey Brown.

The music starts in Ashcroft at 1:45 pm next Friday, Dec. 16 at the CP yard on Railway Ave., so bring your friends, family and a donation of food or cash for the E. Fry Society’s food bank and enjoy the live entertainment.

The train departs for Lytton at approximately 2:30 and arrives there at approximately 4:30, and the fun begins again.

It is also in Kamloops the night before, Dec. 15, where it will give a show at 6:15 pm to the north of Interior Savings on Lorne St.
