A fleet of 30 vehicles including fire trucks from Minquas Fire Companies (including Santa Clause) and various sponsor vehicles traveled down Highland Avenue, entering into the parking lot of Richey Elementary school led by the 76ers “Stixters” drum line band.

Each vehicle unloaded boxes of coats and presented the coats to school administrators and select number of students outside of the school while all of the students cheered on the coat coat parade.
