At 6 p.m., up to 26 brightly decorated fire trucks, police cars, ambulances and other emergency vehicles leave City Centre Park and take a 75-minute journey through the community before heading back to the park.
There, parade-goers can head inside Eagle Ridge Arena for a Christmas in the Park celebration that includes music, magical acts, craft-making, skating and hot chocolate. There will also be a visit from Santa — and the Grinch.
While the event is free, participants are encouraged to bring along a non-perishable food item for the food bank. The indoor event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the arena, 1089 Langford Parkway.
Judging of the parked vehicles begins at 5 p.m. in the park. For more information, go to westshore.bc.ca.
