The festivities began with the annual Stuff-A-Truck event Dec. 4 that was organized this year by the KVFD Juniors. The teens collected unwrapped toys in Rescue 8 and donated them to the Kent Santa Fund to make the holidays much brighter for families and children in need in the town of Kent.
On Dec. 18 the Parade of Lights traveled from the Kent Green, down Main Street to the KVFD Firehouse. The rain stopped to make way for the decorated vehicles to light up the night. Spectators lined up, braving a cold wind, to watch and cheer on the parade participants.
