It’s less than a week until the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train arrives in Yorkton.
Yorkton Holiday Train Committee Chair Randy Goulden says it’s scheduled to arrive at noon next Monday, so some barricades will be put in place.
“There will be limited access to driving up to the site, so Livingstone (Street) will be blocked for the morning, as will 3rd and 4th Avenue South,” Goulden explained. “But there’s lots of parking downtown, in our parking lots. We thank the City of Yorkton for helping us keep our residents and our visitors safe when they come to see the train.”
She also says anyone wanting to attend the event, shouldn’t come empty-handed.
“We would advise you to bring a folding chair to sit in, and maybe an extra blanket,” she said. “But we will be serving, for donations to the (Salvation Army) Food Bank, hot dogs and hot chocolate, so you can keep warm that way too.”
This year’s Holiday Train performers will be Colin James and Emma-Lee.
