Meet Santa’s helpers

Guess who decorates the float that carries St. Nick and his sleigh through Surrey's Santa Parade of Lights parade in Cloverdale?

Who decorates the float that carries Jolly Old St. Nick through Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights in Cloverdale?

Meet B.C. Vintage Truck Museum volunteers Brian Busby and Wally Dick (front), and Gord Hallam and Lloyd Lemky (in the sleigh) as they get the float – a flatbed 1946 Maple Leaf freight truck – ready this week for the star attraction of an already spectacular event.

The parade gets underway from 5 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 7 (entertainment at Hawthorne Square starts at 4 p.m.).

These guys have spent nearly two weeks decorating four vintage trucks for the 9th annual event, expected to draw thousands out for a dazzling display of lighted floats, big rigs, community groups and entertainment.

If you attend, please remember to bring a non-perishable food donation or unwrapped gift for the Surrey Food Bank and the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
