‘Truckers Christmas Parade A Wild Success,’ Says KEKA

This is a press release from KEKA:

This year’s KEKA Truckers Christmas Parade was a great success and tens of thousands of folks crowded the streets of Eureka for the annual event.

“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.

For additional information, call Dale Bridges at 499 – 0789. Proceeds of the event will be presented to Redwood Adult and Teen Challenge.
