Bright lights shine tonight from fire trucks moving slowly around town.
It won’t be a fire they’re going to (though the crews are prepared for emergencies) but the annual Hood River County fire departments’ Christmas Parade.
Starting at 6 p.m., fire trucks will wend through Hood River streets, festooned with holiday lights.
The tour starts with a static display at Westside School, until 6:15 p.m. The trucks then move down Belmont to Avalon, Adams Loop, Park Place, Belmont to Frankton, Post Canyon, Country Club, Belmont East, Methodist Road, Barrett, Markham, Tucker Road, Indian Creek, downtown to Tum-A-Lum, up Sherman and Serpentine, Fourth, Pine, Seventh, May Street, Pine, 11th, 13th, Cascade, Rand, Sherman, 17th, Montello, May Street, 18th, Taylor, 13th, C Street, 17th, A Street, 13th, and Down Manor before ending the parade at Hood River Shopping Center.
The event was also planned Tuesday night, starting at 6 p.m., in Parkdale and Dee. The Tuesday route started at the Parkdale Fire Hall, down Base Line and Clear Creek, Culbertson, Toll Bridge, Old Parkdale Road, Trout Creek, Dee Highway, and then Punch Bowl, Green, Collins and Alder roads before returning to Parkdale.
In other lighting news, Tuesday was judging night for the Hood River Chamber of Commerce residential and business lighting display contest; winners will be published in the Dec. 14 edition of the Hood River News.
