SANTA IS COMING TO TOWN!
Cloverdale is truly “A Good Place to Grow a Family” and celebrate the traditional arrival of Santa with a magical evening Lighted Parade. With the help of a number of businesses and the City of Surrey who “Still Believe in Santa”, the Surrey Santa Parade returns with a larger parade route. The Island Equipment Owners Association are sending some of their best decorated rigs to start the parade in Cloverdale that eventually ends up at a display by Surrey City Hall.
New to this year’s parade are two of the stars of the Discovery Channel “Highway Thru Hell”, Jordie and Nik Duperon who have recently moved to Cloverdale along with starting their new business called Jordie’s Auto Rescue. They will be signing autographs beside Santa who will be available for DYI charity photos 2 hours before the parade start in the parking lot of the BC Vintage Truck Museum (6022 176 St. just west of Elements Casino on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.)
The parade will start a little earlier at 4:45pm and there will be several groups along the route selling food and novelties with proceeds going to charity. We do ask that you consider bringing a non-perishable food donation or gift item that will go to the Surrey Food Bank and the Surrey Christmas Bureau. We have a large number of returning community entries in the parade along with vintage cars, vintage trucks, floats and boats!
Also new this year will be the convoy route of the group aka “Big Rigs for Kids” leaving the parade to head to City Centre. The convoy will regroup at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds after the Surrey Santa Parade and will leave by the Cloverdale Recreation Centre and head north on Highway #15. The group will then head west on Fraser Highway until they arrive at King George Boulevard, they will then turn North and head towards the Surrey City Hall with the vehicles being parked on University Drive near 104 Ave.
