The last time we were able to go watch the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train was in downtown Clinton on December 7, 2019.  Just a few years ago, yet a way different world than we live in today.  That was one of the highlights as a parent. The kids were at the perfect age to truly show what the Christmas Spirit was all about and the concert was incredible.

If you've never been, the Holiday Train is a sight unto itself.  Decked out in lights that brighten up the dark sky while a mass of people dressed head to toe in winter apparel looks on.

They roll up and stop at the crossing.  Then a big door opens on the box car and there's a live band inside.  Top-notch musicians playing some of your favorite songs of the season.

Like many in the past few years, they've had to go virtual with their event, but I'm super happy to see the Holiday Train return.
