The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will return to Davenport at 2 p.m. Thursday. The train will stop on the tracks closest to Modern Woodmen Park at West River Drive and Western Street.

The brightly lighted train makes stops across the country to raise money and awareness about hunger issues in the United States.

The train includes 14 decorated rail cars, including a modified box car that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers. Those attending will be treated to music by the Claytones and Canadian Music Hall of Famer Tracey Brown. Attendees can enjoy cookies and hot chocolate while awaiting the arrival of the train. Plenty of parking will be available.

Each person or family attending is asked to bring five nonperishable food items or a financial donation for admission. Donations benefit the 24 food pantries of Churches United. For information, call 563-332-5002 or visit
