Don't miss the CP Holiday Train's dramatic arrival, scheduled for 4:20pm. The CP Holiday Train is scheduled to roll in at 4:20pm behind the Port Moody Rec Complex, and it’s a sight you don’t want to miss. Decked out in thousands of lights, this train has travelled across Canada raising money, food, and awareness for local food banks and hunger issues. Sing along with Alan Doyle (of Great Big Sea fame) and the Beautiful Band from 4:45-5:15pm - they'll definitely get you into the holiday spirit!


What’s it all for? We’re encouraging people to bring a cash or heart healthy food donation to the event for SHARE Family and Community Services. SHARE does a lot in our community - find out about all the programs they run here. Last year we raised over 960 lbs of food and $1,732.54 - let's try and beat that goal!
