CP Holiday Food Train- Dec. 6th at 3:45 PM


WHAT:  CP RAIL HOLIDAY FOOD TRAIN
WHEN: THURSDAY DECEMBER 6 at 3:45 PM
WHERE:  CORNER OF S. YORK RD  AND RAILROAD AVE.

ABOUT: 

The Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR) Holiday Food Train will be visiting Bensenville for the first time this year!  The train is scheduled to arrive at the corner of S. York Rd  and Railroad Avenue at 3:30 PM on Thursday, December 6th, the event will begin promptly at 3:45 PM

Be sure to arrive early to get a good view of the stage and make a food donation. The Holiday Train is nearly 1,000 feet long with 14 rail cars, each decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED lights and holiday designs. Parking will be available along Railroad Avenue as well as downtown around Village Hall.

The musical entertainment will feature The Trews and Willy Porter. The Canadian Pacific Railroad Holiday Train raises awareness of local hunger issues by encouraging attendees to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to a local food pantry. All donations will benefit the Bensenville-Wood Dale Food Pantry.

The Holiday Train program has raised more than $9 million and more than 3.9 million pounds of food since the first Holiday Train ran in 1999. Thousands of people gather trackside at depots, railroad crossings and other unusual venues along CPR’s route to enjoy the arrival of the brightly decorated trains lighting up the winter night. The musicians, who ride in vintage private cars at the end of the 14-car train, hop out and climb aboard a boxcar in the middle of the train that opens to reveal a stage where they perform live holiday concerts and invite crowds to sing along.
