Looking for an afternoon of festive family fun? The CP Holiday Train event is an annual favourite here in Port Moody.

Help us help others by bringing a cash or healthy food donation for SHARE Family and Community Services. 

When: Tuesday, December 18, 2018 
Where: Behind the Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Road)
Time: Watch the train’s big arrival at 5:20pm and then get ready to sing along with the Sam Roberts Band, Kelly Prescott, Tracey Brown, and Tyson Venegas from 5:45-6:15pm. Decked out in thousands of lights, this train travels across Canada during the holiday season to raise food and cash donations for local food banks. Your generous donation will stay right here in the Tri-Cities with SHARE Family and Community Services.

Parking: The Civic Centre parking lot will be very busy the afternoon of December 18. If you’re coming to the event, think about walking, biking or taking local transit. There is also overflow parking at Inlet Field on Murray Street.
