More than 2,000 people converged in the parking lot to greet the annual arrival of
the CP Holiday Train, which featured music by Sam Roberts, Kelly Prescott and Sierra Noble.
Warmer than normal temperatures helped attract one of the largest-ever crowds for the event, which sees CP run two trains — one across Canada and another through the northern United States.
The purpose of the journey is to help fill shelves and bank accounts of food banks along the way.
In Kamloops, the local food bank received about 4,000 pounds of food and $50,000 in cash donations.
