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.
