Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) People of all ages bundled up tonight to catch The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train roll into town.

Each year the railway sends its Holiday Train on a tour through northern New York and Canada.
At each stop, the train opens its doors to a stage of entertainment and thousands of colorful lights.

This year there was a live performance by Canadian singer Melanie Doane.

"I think it's a great idea for the community CHOW is here and they're collecting food and you know this is the season for giving," said Dan Abashian of Apalachin.

The train will stop in Oneonta on Sunday at 3:15 pm.

It will then roll on to Cobleskill, Delanson and Schenectady.

Visitors are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or cash that will be donated to local food banks in communities where the train stops.

Saturday's donations will go to help the Broome County Council of Churches and the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, or CHOW, to feed the hungry during the holiday season.

This is the 12th year the train has teamed up with CHOW in Binghamton.
