Cumberland Truck Parade lights up the village

It was a perfect evening to light up the skies in Cumberland, thanks to the Cumberland Truck Parade which rolled through the village Saturday night.

People lined Dunsmuir Avenue to see trucks, cars and even a motorcycle decorated with hundreds – if not thousands – of lights.

The Comox Valley RCMP led the parade in their truck – with a grinch-y suspect in the back seat (see below).
