Paradise Truck Parade of Lights
Paradise

Spend an evening on Paradise Ridge with the annual Truck Parade of Lights and Canned Food Drive.

This community event for all ages is a Paradise tradition. Anyone with a decorated truck or vehicle is welcome to enter the parade with an entry fee of NON PERISHABLE FOOD. Food can be dropped off at Ace Hardware (Paradise), Smokers Paradise in Magalia, or at the check in table near the front of store on day of parade. Please note: you may not throw anything from vehicles!

The parade begins with staging at Ace Hardware at 4:30 with judging beginning at 5. Trucks will then travel west on Pearson, past the Paradise Community Park to Skyway. Then it proceeds north on Skyway to the Holiday shopping center and trucks double-back on the same route, which means that all trucks can be seen twice!

For the safety of everyone, please be aware of others, use PPE, and maintain social distancing. Additionally, please watch the parade from the specified route and avoid coming into the Ace Hardware parking lot.
