Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train will visit Brookings and Huron Dec. 7.
The train will visit Brookings at 5 p.m. at 534 S. 22nd Ave. and Huron at 10 p.m. at 1000 Market Road at the State Fair racetrack.
The train’s schedule, available on CP’s website at www.cpr.ca and on CP’s Facebook page, outlines plans for the “train of lights” to partner with communities in raising food and money for local food banks.
The 2013 CP Holiday Train program launches on Nov. 25 in Kahnawake, Quebec, formally kicking off the three-week journey of two brightly decorated trains across Canada and the United States with its first U.S. stop in Scranton, Pa.
The Canadian train will wrap up its journey Dec. 16 in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, while the U.S. train will journey across the U.S. Northeast and Midwest before its final stop Dec. 19 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
