A parade of brightly lit vehicles will take to Lloydminster streets on Monday.
The Parade of Lights starts at 7 p.m. from the Lloydminster Exhibition Grounds and will conclude at approximately 9 p.m.
The event is being organized by local residents Conor Burns and Ryan Leblanc with donations to benefit the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton.
“This is something that hasn’t been before,” said Leblanc who works for Husky Energy.
He said 44 vehicles were registered to participate by noon Wednesday with many more to come.
The parade will travel west along 57 to Hwy 17; follow Hwy 17 south until 46 Street; east to 49 Avenue; and north back to the exhibition grounds.
The convoy will include dozens of vehicles, ranging from large trucks to emergency-response units.
Lloydminster drivers are advised of temporary street closures along the parade route.
The event is free for everyone to enter but businesses and vehicle owners are asked to contact Leblanc either by phone at 780-872-9039 or by email at rnleblanc@gmail.com.
Those who want to volunteer can call Burns at 780-214-5008 or at cbarnes852@gmail.com.
Ulmer Chevrolet Cadillac will have a truck at the exhibition grounds to collect non perishable food for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
