Holiday train pulls into Northeast's Shoreham Yards Dec. 12

Holiday parties are breaking out in Northeast Minneapolis. Here’s one for the whole family: Join the Northeast Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce as it celebrates the return of Canadian Pacific Railway’s Holiday Train from 8 to 10 p.m., Saturday, December 12. You won’t want to miss this visual display as the train adorned in holiday lights pulls into Shoreham Yard at about 9:15 p.m. 

Before the train arrives, enjoy a hayride, kiddie train, music and treats with the whole family at Shoreham Yard, 2800 Central Avenue NE. The event is an annual food drive to benefit East Side Neighborhood Services so donations of non-perishable food items and cash are appreciated.

The Chamber will also host its annual Holiday Party at Jax Café, 1928 University Ave. NE, on Wednesday, Dec. 9, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. featuring a $2500 cash raffle prize drawing. Event admission includes appetizers, a complimentary cocktail and a free chance at a merchandise drawing. Students from Aveda Institute will be also on hand to provide a variety of spa services. Come network with Northeast Minneapolis business members. Admission is $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Register here.

Raffle tickets are on sale now here. With only 100 raffle tickets for sale at $50 a piece, ticket buyers have a decent shot at taking home $2500. You don’t have to be present at the holiday party to win.
