Last Saturday I attended one of my favourite Christmas events –
the annual Victoria Truck Parade. A fund raising event for local food banks,
the truck parade is sponsored by the Island Equipment Owners Association.
Truck owners and companies put a lot of time and effort into producing
dazzlingly displays. Cement trucks, dump trucks, slingers, crane trucks,
fire trucks, grocery trucks and buses form a convoy to the delight of thousands of spectators.
The convoy takes two and a half hours to complete the route around Victoria.
That’s a lot of honking and waving! And a great start to the festive season.
