Christmas Train

This is a unique event in our little town of Vermilion Bay. Since the Canadian Pacific Railroad travels right by our town on it's route across Canada, the CPR's Christmas train made a stop this year. This fully decorated train complete with stage and several bands stops at cities and towns across Canada and entertains the folks while soliciting donations for the local food banks. The larger towns will get the full stage show, whereas our little town got a couple of songs sung from the balcony of the last car. It was a nice community event with many families out to brave the cold weather to see the performers and Santa of course.
