Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights brought the Christmas spirit to Cloverdale on Sunday night.



Thousands of people turned out for the ninth-annual Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights in Cloverdale on Sunday night.

The parade featured floats, boats, horses, marching units, community and sports groups, antique cars and trucks, buses and the arrival of Santa Claus. It also included lighted big rigs and trucks from the Island Equipment Owners Association and local Fraser Valley trucks.

The annual event also included live music and collected donations for the Surrey Christmas Bureau and Surrey Food Bank.

The Cloverdale Lions Club and Rotary Club of Cloverdale were on hand selling popcorn, chili, hot chocolate, cookies and tree ornaments for charity.
