    I wish I could see it too. But the parking is the pitts where it stops in my city. And I can't do a lot of walking.
    This is put on by the Canadian Pacific Railway.

    The 14-car train, decorated with hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights.

    The singers are Sydney Grigg and Willy Porter, plus Santa Claus are the entertainment.

    They do this for charity. And everything they collect goes to the community where they stop in, since they do a food drive.

    Froggie When it seems impossible, the possible happens

    That's great, it must be pretty heart warming as an experience to volunteer to such an experience.
