Minnedosa and area residents were excited by the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train on Tuesday evening. The train is made up of 14 brightly lit railcars and a converted boxcar which becomes a traveling stage.
Canadian performers Melanie Doane and Doc Walker entertained the huge crowd and Santa was on hand to give out candy canes.
Canadian Pacific introduced the Holiday Train 15 years ago and has raised $7.4 million and three million pounds of food for local communities. Contributions stay in the community in which they were raised.
The train was scheduled to be in Shoal Lake Wednesday morning with its final destination being Port Coquitlam, B.C. on Dec. 16.
