Visitors flock to Loretto to see Holiday Train despite cold

The Canadian Pacific Railway Holiday Train brought a multitude of bright lights to Loretto, Sunday, Dec. 15, and Loretto residents added to festivities by lighting up their homes. Near-zero temperatures did not dissuade visitors who came to hear Willy Porter and the Claytones perform from a lighted boxcar stage. Loretto cooked up its own entertainment, including caroling, a Santa visit and the traditional kiddy train. Visitors donated food and money for food shelves in Hanover, Rockford, Delano and Maple Plain.
