‘Truckers Christmas Parade A Wild Success,’ Says KEKA
This is a press release from KEKA:
“This was an interesting event this year” said Coordinator Dale Bridges. Bridges, and his team of volunteers from many local governmental agencies, community groups and the general public had the event working as smooth as ever. “It was great that the parade had over 80 floats spectacularly light up,” Bridges shared.
Again this year, the entrants were judged in two categories (under 40-foot and over 40-foot). Those selected as the first place and second place winners received checks and plaques. This year’s winners were:
1st Place, Large Float Sanders Roofing / Boy Scouts of America – Troop 54
2nd Place, Large Float Humboldt County Public Works Santa and Reindeer
1st Place, Small Float Darrell Baker Trucking and the Toys for Tots float
2nd Place, Small Float Dan Byrd Painting Fire Truck
The sponsors of this year’s KEKA Christmas Truckers Parade were Green Diamond Resource Company, Schmidbauer Lumber, North Coast Dance, The Arkley Center for the Performing Arts and Humboldt Waste Management Authority. And once more this year, Don’s Rental has donated the charges for the generators used on the floats for this year’s event to the recognized non-profit: Redwood Adult and Teen Challenge.
