Christmas Light Truck Parade

Every year on the first Saturday of December there is a Christmas Light Truck Parade in Victoria, BC, organized by the Island Equipment Owners Association. Usually 80-90 beautifully decorated trucks participate in the Parade, collecting donations en route. Every driver get an 8 X 10 enlargements of their trucks and I have been taking those pictures for the last 5 years. It's a big show, draws a huge crowd along the way when the trucks drive out of the city to Western Speedway.

The lead vehicle was a well known local businessman's Volvo Motor Home decorated with over 7000 lights.

Trucks are lined up ready for the convoy.

Tow truck with trailer in full Christmas decoration.

Slegg Lumber's Peterbilt was a huge success.

At the end of the show trucks are parked on the speedway and everybody can take a close look. Decorating a mixer with a rotating drum is a real challenge.
