1 Two events, one lit-up and rollin’ parade. The ninth annual Lighted Parade kicks off and revs up at Cloverdale Town Centre this Sunday (Dec. 7) at 4 p.m. Entertainment, charity food vendors and an open house for children to do Christmas crafts take place at Hawthorne Square.
2 Then, at 5 p.m. Sunday, more than 90 lighted trucks and rigs will make their way from the Cloverdale Fairgrounds through historic downtown Cloverdale, with a large convoy headed to Holland Park in the Surrey City Centre as part of Big Rigs for Kids. At 6:30 p.m. at Holland Park, there will be carollers, hot dogs and hot chocolate, with the help of Surrey Lions. The events close at 8:30 p.m. and they’re put on in conjunction with each other; Downtown Surrey BIA and Cloverdale BIA request parade-goers consider bringing a nonperishable food item for Surrey Food Bank or an unwrapped gift for Surrey Christmas Bureau.
3 It’s time to get aboard the Christmas Train again! Visit with Santa, receive a candy cane, Christmas activity kit and train ride through the Christmas forest. Starting this Saturday (Dec. 6), Santa will be at the train from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Tickets for the train are $8 for adults and children at Bear Creek Park (13750 88th Ave.).
