Annual Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive attracts thousands of spectators in West Shore and around Greater Victoria



Thousands of residents from the West Shore to James Bay, braved rainy, cold weather Saturday evening to take in the annual Island Equipment Owners Association Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive.

The event, which doubles as a Christmas spectacle and a food bank donation collection vehicle, continues to be popular with residents looking to kick off the festive season around the region.

Thousands of pounds of non-perishable food items were dropped off on the night to drop-off points and ahead of time.
