It was a beautiful day for a winter music festival in the Quinte region and that is what hundreds and hundreds of fans got Monday morning. The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train made stops in Belleville, Trenton & Brighton, bringing music, fun and funds to local food banks.
They donated thousands of dollars to the Gleaners, Trenton Care & Share and Brighton Food Banks. Those in attendance also made food donations.
Performing on the train this year were Country star Dallas Smith & rockers The Odds.
Dallas Smith tells Quinte News that the reach the Holiday Train has is incredible.
CP Rail Spokeswoman Katie Hill says the train and those going to the shows have made a big difference.
Susanne Quinlan with Gleaners Food Bank says the $7,000 from Canadian Pacific donated could not have come at a better time.
