The Christmas Train is coming to town this weekend.

Hearst and Kapuskasing will be two of the stops this weekend for the Ontario Northland Christmas Train to ‘Brighten the Night’.

The annual Christmas tradition will be bringing with it a chance to meet Santa as well as share in some carols and activities to get you into the holiday spirit.

There will also be a chance to buy foam light-up stick for five dollars, with all the proceeds going to local charities, and you can bring a non-perishable item for the local Food Bank or monetary or toy donations for the 2018 Christmas Angel Campaign as well.

You can also warm up inside the Welcome Centre with a hot chocolate provided by McDonalds.

This year the train will be stopping in Hearst on Sunday, December 2nd behind Le Companion.

Then the Northland will make a stop in Kapuskasing the following day on Monday, December 3rd at the Kapuskasing Special Events Centre beginning at 6:00pm.
