  • 2018 Holiday Train Arrives in Gurnee on Thursday, December 6th!

    The Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR) Holiday Train will be hitting the rails again soon and making a stop in Gurnee!

     The Gurnee Chamber of Commerce and the Northern Illinois Food Bank will be collecting non perishable food items 

    Gurnee Chamber of Commerce sponsors provide snacks to only those who donate .

    We will also have a petting zoo and holiday music from 3:30 pm until the train leaves.


    The train is scheduled to arrive near Viking Park (4374 Old Grand Avenue) at 5:50 pm on Thursday, December 6th. Be sure to arrive early to see the train pull in. The Holiday Train is nearly 1,000 feet long with 14 rail cars, each decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED lights and holiday designs. Parking will be available at Viking Park and Viking Park Middle School. 

    This year's musical entertainment will feature entertainment from The Trews and Willy Porter.
