EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)- A 30 year old Eureka tradition will be back this Christmas season.
On the second Saturday of December, Rex and friends will host the annual trucker’s Christmas parade.
There will be 90 to 120 lit up trucks attempting to play jingle bells with their air horns. The parade is going to be a 5.7 mile course with around 10,000 people spaced 6 feet apart.
It is an attempt to add some normalcy to this holiday season.
Humboldt County’s first district supervisor, Rex Bohn, is excited to bring the parade back to life once again as he states, “It all boils down to that one little kid with a big beaming smile jumping up and down…this is something you can bring a small family and actually feel well… it’s a little bit of Humboldt Christmas.”
All proceeds from the event will go towards the boys and girls club of the Redwoods.
