Catch the Holiday Train and more opportunities to buy local

Does the idea of a freight train all decked out in Christmas lights and packed with holiday performers and Santa Claus get you--or perhaps younger members of your household --excited? Well you should plan on checking out the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train. The train travels across Canada and the U.S. collecting food for the hungry and spreading holiday cheer. This year it will be stopping in the Twin Cities on Tuesday, December 11th. Specific locations and times below:

St. Paul: 7-8PM--Upper level of Central Parking System ramp at Broadway and Kellogg under the Lafayette Freeway Bridge and East end of old post office. Food and cash donations will benefit Second Harvest Heartland.

Minneapolis: 9-10PM--Canadian Pacific Railway's Shoreham Yard, 2800 Central Avenue, NE. Donations will benefit Eastside Neighborhood Services.

Also, if you're ready to delve into your gift shopping this weekend, there are two great local events:

The No Coast Craft Show and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design Art Sale. Follow the links to get the details.
