Kent Volunteer Fire Department held t its Stuff-A-Truck and Parade of Lights on the same day, Sunday, Dec. 13, 2016.
The volunteers held Stuff-A-Truck to collect items to make the holidays a bit brighter for those less fortunate in the Kent community. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., toys and non-perishable food were collected for the Kent Santa Fund and the Kent Food Bank. Twenty five children received gifts through the effort.
Main Street was full of lights for the holiday season thanks to visiting fire departments and KVFD for the Parade of Lights. Trucks lined up on the Kent Green at 5:30 p.m. and began moving at 6, heading south on Main Street and then turning on Maple Street (Route 341) to finish at the KVFD firehouse.
Children were busy collecting candy thrown out on the street by many of the vehicles and floats.
