Please helps us collect food donations for the Mustard Seed! Shatterbox Coffee has teamed up with Victoria Buzz to help raise food donations for the Mustard Seed Food Bank, during the Island Equipment Owners Association’s Lighted Truck Parade on Saturday, December 6th.

Victoria Buzz volunteers will be under a tent adjacent to Shatterbox, from 6pm onwards.  The parade is scheduled to pass by right in front of Shatterbox at about 6:35pm. Shatterbox Coffee will be open all day and into the night, and serving from their amazing menu.

We please ask you to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item.  Drop it at the tent, and for each donation received, we’ll serve you up a 8oz. or 12oz. warm spiced apple cider (non-alcoholic) – for just $1.

We’ll see you on Saturday, December 6th.  Shatterbox Coffee is at 950 Yates St., opposite the London Drugs Plaza.  Parking can be found nearby on Yates, Johnson, View and Vancouver Streets.

  • Timing in respect to the Truck Light Convoy is approximate
  • In order to keep the trucks moving the police escorted convoy travels at a varied rate of speed, it does not travel as slow as a parade does.
  • The convoy will travel slower along Dallas Road, through Oak Bay Village, downtown Victoria, behind VGH, and the intersection of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Goldstream Road.
  • Traffic may be congested along the event route . Please consider an alternate route.
