Cars, trucks, and vehicles of all sizes will be decked out in lights and decorations and will be winding their way through Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for the third annual Christmas Convoy Parade.

Born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Christmas Convoy Parade started after many Christmas parades and events were cancelled.

The parade was started by Laura Faye and Roxanne Ferland, who were able to coordinate two parade routes, in order to bring Christmas spirit to peoples’ homes.

Faye and Tiaan Atkinson planned out this years route. Currently they have 84 vehicles confirmed, the largest group of drivers they have had in the three years the event has been taking place, said Faye.
