Christmas is one of the best times of the year. The holiday spirit can be infectious and lead many people to decorate in innovative ways. If you think you’ve seen every type of Christmas decoration, think again!
The ‘Canadian Pacific Holiday Train’ is a long train of freight cars decorated with flashing lights. Each car showcases unique designs as the train passes and lights up the night with festive joy.
Santa, presents, Rudolph, jingle bells, and more are visible on each car as kids and parents wave at the passing train. The holiday season is marked by the train’s tour of Canada and North America.
The train raises money, food, and awareness for local food banks and communities while performing over 150 live shows. The train also features live music from guest artists.
Since the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train program launched in 1999, it’s raised more than $21 million and collected 5 million pounds of food for community food banks across North America.
This amazing video of the train making its annual run features the music of ‘The Tractors,’ singing ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town (in a boogie-woogie choo-choo train).’ The song was featured on their 1995 album ‘Have Yourself a Tractors Christmas.’
The boogie-woogie holiday music and the spectacular views of the lighted train will bring joy to every viewer. The Christmas Spectacular is a wonderful treat that helps so many people too.
