The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is coming to Davenport and will stop here on Thursday, December 6th at 2pm at the Florian Keen parking lot (Western Ave @ West River Drive - by Modern Woodman Park).

That afternoon, the community will rally together and collect food and funds for Churches United’s 24 food pantries and enjoy a special holiday experience right here in the Quad Cities! The train will stop in Davenport for an approximate 45 minute performance.

Admission is a food or cash donation. There will be a drive through area to drop off food and cash donations and see the decorated train.

Here’s some information:
* The Holiday Train is 1,000 feet in length with 14 decorated rail cars including a modified box car that’s been turned into a traveling stage for performers. Canadian recording artist Shaun Verreault of “Wide Mouth Mason” and Juno award-winning singer Melanie Doane will be the musical headliners on the US Holiday Train keeping the community warm with well known holiday tunes.
* Since 1999, the CP Holiday Train program has generated over 1000 tons of food donations and raised over $4 million for food programs.
