Taking place from 5:00 pm-8:00 pm the CP Canada 150 Train will feature Canadian entertainment from Dallas Arcand, champion Aboriginal hoop dancer, Juno award-winning country music singer Dean Brody, as well as Juno award winner Eagle and Hawk.

Other family friendly activities include decorating your own conductor hat and colour CP posters at the Kids Craft Station, enjoying a complimentary celebration treat (while supplies last), taking a life-sized photographic tour of CP’s past and learning about the railway’s role in Connecting Canada, as well as taking a photo in a cutout of the CP 2816 Empress, a class H1b Hudson-type steam locomotive.

Kids are also invited to write their hopes for the Canada of tomorrow on a commemorative card which will be affixed upon the railcar and as the CP Canada 150 Train makes its journey across the country, the Spirit of Tomorrow will come alive. 

The final Spirit of Tomorrow car will be included in CP’s 2017 Holiday Train program for everyone to see.
