What a wonderful night for a parade of close to 100 trucks and trailers decked out with lights and decorations. The Parade of Lights have been brightening the winter evenings for 18 years to raise money for some wonderful charities like: Autism Ontario, George Jeffery Children's Centre, The Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association and the Special Olympics Ontario.
Our Friday night was full of lights, decorations, and excitement. Shortly after 6:00 pm the volunteers for Autism Ontario arrived at our garage and it was straight to work. Luckily, after 18 years of doing it, we were able to wrap it up just after 9:00 pm. Nothing makes all the work worth it then seeing the thousands of smiling faces of Thunder Bay residence lining the streets and cheering us on.
We are happy to be a part of this wonderful event every year and to help out some terrific local charities. Thank you to everyone that came out to see our displays and to donate. Lets hope that they were able to exceed their goal of $25,000. Hope to see you all next year.
