Central City Big Rigs for Kids – Lighted Truck Parade

Sunday, December 2nd will mark the third year the “Big Rigs for Kids” lighted truck parade winds its way through the streets of Surrey.

The parade is the brain-child of John White, editor and publisher of Pro-Trucker Magazine. He approached several people in the community with the idea to bring the popular Victoria Truck Parade to Surrey. John believed that people in our City would love to watch a parade of big rigs decked out for Christmas and at the same time raise funds for the Surrey Food Bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau.

On December 2nd , the trucks will travel from Cloverdale, along Number 10 Highway to King George Boulevard. They will then head north on King George to Old Yale Road where they will park. They are expected to go by the Newton viewing area between 6:10-6:20pm and arrive at Holland Park by 6:40pm. When the trucks park along Old Yale Road, South of Central City spectators are encouraged to visit with the trucks and drivers, who spend many hours decorating their big rigs.

This year everyone will be encouraged to vote for their favourite trucks by putting loonies in containers located by each truck. The fan favourite will receive a trophy for Best Decorated Truck. All loonie “votes” will be donated to the Surrey Food Bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau. White is confident that donations will top the $5,000 raised last year.

The North Surrey Lions will help to keep you warm with hot chocolate, hot dogs and entertainment at Holland Park starting at 6pm. The trucks will arrive at Holland Park at 6:40pm and leave at 8pm.
