I've been lucky enough to spot the Lower Valley Christmas Trucks a couple of times already this season, and I'm never expecting it!

There are pickup trucks, semi-tractor-trailer trucks, and a wide variety of other vehicles all lit up and all playing Christmas music and honking their horns. It's really quite a sight!

According to an article from KEPR-TV, the idea came from a Yakima man who works for Coca-Cola who just wanted to spread some holiday cheer. That was back when it was just a couple of trucks. Now it's enough for a whole parade!

Between now and Christmas Eve, they hit as many cities as they can in our area. It's a good idea to follow Lower Valley Christmas Trucks on Facebook to find out where they're going to be next!
