Looking for an afternoon of festive family fun? The CP Holiday Train event is an annual favourite here in Port Moody. Help us help others by bringing a cash or healthy food donation for SHARE Family and Community Services. Last year we raised over 714 lbs of food and $5,153.80 - let's try and beat that goal.

Check out the Port Moody Police Department trailer and police cruiser, or chat with the Port Moody Volunteer Firefighters as they tend to the bonfire.

Finally, join in a mini soccer game, or win big at bean bag toss, on the Trasolini Practice Field.
