The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled into the Amtrak Depot in Sturtevant on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017.

The Holiday Train is 14 rolling rail cars, brightly lit with hundreds of thousands of colorful, LED lights in seasonal shapes. It stops long enough for its specially equipped boxcar stage to be opened, where Canadian performers Kelly Prescott, Terri Clark and Dallas Smith entertained the crowd with a free concert of popular and holiday music.

Nonperishable food items and monetary donations will be collected for local food banks.

This is the 19th year the Holiday Train is returning to the rails to raise money, food and awareness for food banks and hunger issues across Canada and the United States.
