2016 cp holiday train

Update: Dec. 14, 2016

Parking is limited. The Civic Centre parking lot will be very busy the evening of December 17 and conditions are poor due to recent snow and freezing temperatures. If you’re coming to the event, think about walking, or taking the bus or SkyTrain. There is also overflow parking in the Works Yard staff parking lot at 3250 Murray Street.

Crews will do their best to ensure walkways and paths are salted. However, conditions around City Hall remain icy. Please dress warmly and wear winter boots with good grip to help you get around.

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 Dallas Smith and Odds, who will definitely get you into the holiday spirit. 


What’s it all for? We’re encouraging people to bring a cash or a 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 1,410 lbs of food and $1,362.67 - let's try and beat that goal!
