Caron Butler Holiday Train

RACINE — One of Racine's favorite sons, two-time NBA All-Star Caron Butler, will be bringing 15 local kids to see the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train tonight.

Butler announced on his Facebook page that a bus with himself and the kids will be leaving the Dr. John Bryant Community Center, 601 21st St., at 5 p.m. tonight.

The Holiday Train is making two stops in Racine County tonight: one at the Amtrak station in Sturtevant and the other near The Depot tavern on Highway G in Caledonia. Butler's bus is going to the stop at The Depot.

"All kids should experience this," Butler said in a Facebook post, followed by a heart emoji.

The train travels across North America every year, raising money and collecting food for dozens of food banks, and has become a holiday-time staple in Racine County.

Festivities — including a live DJ, visit from Santa, Milwaukee Brewers costumed representatives, and food and drinks — are already underway at The Depot. 

The train is expected to arrive in Sturtevant at 6:50 p.m. before moving on to the stop in Caledonia at 8 p.m.
