Holiday Train of Lights rolls into Rochester


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Train of Lights rolled into Rochester Friday bringing with it some Christmas magic. The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is a tradition famous for spreading holiday cheer and also bringing a lot of good will as well.

One stop at a time, the Holiday Train opens its 14 festively-decorated cars to get the crowds moving to some rocking Christmas music, all while collecting food and money donations to be used right here in Olmsted County to fight hunger.

The holiday train is partnered with Channel One Food Bank, which sees people swarming to the food shelf, particularly at this time of year.

Santa also came out to share the Christmas magic.

Organizers say there isn't a charge to join the train in some holiday spirit, but attendees are encouraged to donate either non-perishable food items or a cash donation.

If you missed the train Friday, the holiday cheer continues when it rolls into Austin on Monday, December 9th.
