The CP Holiday Train is set to roll into Whitemouth and bring with it live performances and a whole lot of Christmas spirit.

The annual CP Holiday Train, a train decorated for the holidays, started its annual voyage through Canada, setting out from Montreal on Nov. 27.

The train, which will travel from coast-to-coast, will make a stop in Whitemouth on Dec. 3, stopping at Railway Ave. across from the Whitemouth Hotel at 7 p.m.

The annual voyage works as a fundraiser to help those who are less fortunate as those who come to check out the train are asked to bring a cash donation or a "heart healthy" food donation which will be donated to a local food bank.

The train will also bring with it some live entertainment as the stop in Whitemouth will see performances by well-known Canadian performers Sierra Noble, Terri Clark and Kelly Prescott.

The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has raised more than $14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food in that time and every pound and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank.
