An adored holiday tradition will roll into Wisconsin again this December. 

While Christmas may seem a long way down the tracks, Canadian Pacific announced its schedule for the 2017 Holiday Train Thursday, which will include 13 stops in Wisconsin. It’s all in an effort to raise money, food, and awareness for local food banks and food shelves.

This is the train’s 19th year providing family-friendly entertainment of sights and sounds including performances by Kelly Prescott and Colin James.
