The parade starts at 6 p.m. at Plaza Street and Dewdney Trunk Road and goes down 224th Street and south through the Memorial Peace Park, then back on to 224th St. to Selkirk Avenue.

Help is needed for both events.

A volunteer meeting takes place this Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the Fraser Room in the Maple Ridge Public Library.

“We need all the help we can get as we welcome close to 12,000 people to the event,” organizers say online.

Everyone who wants to help out is welcome at the meeting. Volunteers can also message that they want to help out via the event’s Facebook page.

The time is commitment is only a few hours and is one of the largest community events in Maple Ridge, say organizers.
