KAMLOOPS - It's that time of year again — the CP Holiday Train is set to roll through the Shuswap and South Thompson this month.

The annual train full of lights and music will be arriving in Sicamous on Dec. 14 at approximately 5:15 p.m., where Alan Doyle and The Beautiful Band will perform.

From there, the train will stop in Canoe, Salmon Arm, and Notch Hill throughout the evening for more performances.

On Dec. 15, the train will proceed to Chase for a 2:50 p.m. performance, before arriving in Kamloops at approximately 4:45 p.m.

The Kamloops performance will be in front of the Sandman Centre downtown, in the same location as last year.

At roughly 7:15 p.m., the train will arive in Savona at Savona Access Road and Park Lane. Then, for the final performance of the night, the train will arrive in Ashcroft at approximately 8:50 p.m. at Railway Avenue.

The last Southern Interior performance will be on Dec. 16 in Lytton at 12:45 p.m. at Station Road.
