Christmas Truck Parade:
On Saturday, December 1st, the Christmas Truck Parade will travel from Village Park along Dunsmuir to First Street and will be closely followed by the arrival of Santa at Village Square. The Trucks will then return and park for display (and judging) along Dunsmuir Avenue.
Upon his arrival, Santa will be located at Village Square and will be available to receive Christmas wishes. Local crafts, warm drinks and snacks will also be available for purchase.
Spectators are encouraged to vote for their favourite truck. Ballots will be available for the public by donation and can be picked up at the white information tents, located along Dunsmuir Avenue. Submitting a ballot also provides voters an opportunity to win one of many great raffle prizes.
All proceeds from the ballots and raffle will go to You Are Not Alone (YANA). The Village of Cumberland and Organizing Committee are proud to support YANA in offering support and help to Comox Valley families who need to travel for medical services for their children.
For the safety of all participants, it is requested that attendees remain on the sidewalks, and keep streets clear until otherwise directed by traffic control.
