The Third Annual Central City Big Rigs for Kids, also known as the Lighted Truck Parade, will wind its way through the streets of Surrey on Sunday December 2nd.
This year, the trucks will leave Cloverdale around 5:45pm, travel along Number 10 Highway to King George Boulevard, and then head North to Old Yale Road, where they will park. The trucks are expected to go by the Newton viewing area (Save-On Foods) between 6:10-6:20pm and arrive at Holland Park by 6:40pm.
Spectators are encouraged to vote for their favorite trucks by donating loonies into the containers located by each truck. The Fan Favourite will be awarded a trophy. All donations will be going towards the Surrey Food bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau and both organizations will be onsite to collect canned food and toys.
The North Surrey Lions Club will be selling hot chocolate and hot dogs. Last year, this event generated over $5,000 which was distributed between the two charities.
The entertainment at Holland Park begins at 6pm. The trucks will be on display on Old Yale Road (north of Holland Park) from 6:40-8pm.
