Get ready, there's a train coming!
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is coming to our area this weekend. The train is completely decked out with lights and a Christmas Tree adorns the cab of the train's engine. Each stop will include a concert, fit for all ages. The weather will be delightful! Temps will be in the 30s and 40s each day. Coolest conditions will be for the stop in Muscatine tonight.
The first stop is Friday afternoon in downtown Savanna, Illinois. The train arrives at 3:15pm and will be parked along downtown near Bowen Avenue.
The train will then travel downriver to Muscatine, Iowa, arriving at Riverside Park around 7:30pm.
There will be a break overnight for the train with a Davenport, Iowa stop at 1:45pm. It will be near the Farmer's Market downtown, right near Modern Woodman Field.
After the Davenport stop, the train will go on the line upriver to Clinton, Iowa where it will arrive around 4:15pm with festivities taking place after that. The train will park near the Sawmill Museum, north of downtown.
