The CP Holiday Train entertainers are tuning up for a big show and are coming to Golden on Dec. 14.

For its 14th year of operation, the CP Holiday Train is featuring 14 brightly decorated cars, covered in hundreds of thousands of LED lights. Artists will perform on a modified boxcar that has been turned into a travelling stage.

Last year, the train was headlined by Canadian legend Valdy. This year Juno Award winning trio, Doc Walker is taking the stage.

The Portage La Prairie band has been making music since 1996, and has earned themselves a Canadian Country Music Award and several radio hit singles including If I Fall, The Show is Free, and Rocket Girl.

Just last year they released a Christmas EP called Remember December.

Joining them on stage will be Kingston Ont. native Miss Emily. The “Adele-esque” artist has performed at the Ottawa Bluesfest, and has shared the stage with The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts Band, and The Trews.

Since 1999 the CP Holiday Train has become an important fundraiser for many food banks. In 14 years, the Holiday Train program has raised close to $6.4 million, and about 2.6 million pounds of food for North American food banks. Everything that is raised in the community stays in the community for local distribution.

The train will roll into Golden at 2 p.m. on Friday Dec. 14. The show will start at 2:15 p.m. in the CP parking lot across from 7-Eleven. People should arrive early to drop off their donations and get a good spot in the crowd. The event is free, but food and monetary donations are accepted, and will remain in the community.
