CP Holiday Train keeps rolling through Wisconsin Saturday

COLUMBUS, Wis. — The 2022 CP Holiday Train will continue to roll through southern Wisconsin on Saturday.

The holiday celebration on wheels has returned for its 24th year after holding virtual concerts in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inside one of the train’s box cars is a stage where live performers will entertain the crowds. Performers at the Wisconsin stops will be Alan Doye and Kelly Prescott.

The event is free to attend, but attendees are asked to bring cash or a non-perishable food donation to support food banks and food shelves across the country.

The train rolled through Watertown and Columbus Friday night and will head west from there on Saturday.
