2016 Truckers Parade Winners

This year’s KEKA Truckers Christmas Parade was a great success and thousands of folks crowded the streets of Eureka for the annual event.

“This was a quite a smooth event” said Coordinator Dale Bridges. Bridges, and his team of volunteers from many local governmental agencies, community groups and the general public had the event working as smooth as ever. “It was great that the parade had so many floats spectacularly light up,” Bridges shared.

Again this year, entrants were judged in two categories (under 40-foot and over 40-foot). Those selected as the first place and second place winners received checks and plaques.

This year’s winners were:

1st Place, Large Float: Humboldt Community Services District Santa’s Delight
2nd Place, Large Float: Humboldt County Public Works Santa and Reindeer

1st Place, Small Float: Kurwitz Family Santa’s Sleigh
2nd Place, Small Float: Dan Byrd Fire Truck

Two of this year’s winners, the Kurwitz Family and Dan Byrd, donated their cash prizes to this year’s beneficiary – Toys for Tots.

The sponsors of this year’s KEKA Christmas Truckers Parade were HealthSPORT, Schmidbauer Lumber, Sudden Link Communications and Humboldt Waste Management Authority. And once more this year, Don’s Rental has donated the charges for those generators used on the floats for this year’s event to the recognized non-profit: Toys for Tots.
