The CP Holiday Train will roll into Swift Current on Thursday, December 6 and this year we get to see the train at night as it arrives in Swift Current at 8:15pm. The Salvation Army will be there with a truck accepting donations to the food bank and will also have a kettle set up for donations. CP will also make a cheque presentation to the Salvation Army to go towards the Christmas campaign.
The town of Shaunavon is hosting their annual Parade Of Lights on Thursday, December 6 to kick off the season and hold their first night of late night shopping. The Parade Of Lights is always a fantastic event that draws large crowds in Shaunavon.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Swift Current & southwest Saskatchewan.
