This year's parade will have over 60 entries

Santa Claus is coming to town

The 11th annual Surrey's Santa Parade of Lights is set for Sunday, Dec. 4.

Cloverdale will celebrate the arrival of Christmas this Sunday, Dec. 4, with the 11th annual Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights.

Santa Claus will be welcomed with a procession of floats and big rig trucks, covered from bumper to bumper in brilliant strings of lights.

The parade is led by Central City’s Santa’s Big Rigs for Kids which includes lighted big rigs and trucks from The Island Equipment Owners Association, and they are joined by many local Fraser Valley trucks.

But that’s not all. This year’s parade will have over 60 entries, including hot rods, floats, boats, remote control cars, marching units and horses.

“This parade is probably one of our largest ever,” said Paul Orazetti, executive director of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association. “We’ll have something for everyone.

This year’s parade will also feature two stars from the Discovery Channel “Highway Thru Hell” show, Jordie and Nik Duperson, who recently moved to Cloverdale to start their new business, Jordie’s Auto Rescue. The two will be signing autographs beside Santa and will be available for charity photos two hours before the parade starts in the parking lot of the BC Vintage Truck Museum.

The parade kicks off at 4:45 p.m.. Donations of food, toys and gifts will be collected along the parade route on behalf of the Surrey Food Bank and the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

The convoy will set off from the Cloverdale Fairgrounds, turn down 60th Avenue and then 57 Avenue, before heading north to regroup at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. The convoy will then head towards Surrey City Hall and the vehicles will park on University Drive near 104 Ave.
