Hey Greater Victoria, get ready to have your streets lit up by 80 brilliantly-decorated trucks for the 19th year in a row!

The annual IEOA truck light convoy and food drive is back this Saturday, and even if you can’t make it to the real-life event, you can still have a great view of the event: Victoria Buzz will be live broadcasting a professional, multiple high-definition camera production of it by Roll Focus Productions on our Facebook page!

It’s a procession of trucks covered in Christmas lights that also helps feed the hungry – what’s not to love?!

Here’s how you can participate in this Victorian holiday tradition:
