PARADISE, Calif. - On Saturday the town of Paradise rallied through the rain to celebrate the holidays. 

Organizers of the annual Truck Parade of Lights gathered at the Paradise Ace Hardware parking lot to get their truck decorations ready for the event. 

Eric Hegenbart, a Camp Fire survivor proudly displayed inflatable Christmas decorations and patriotic lights in red, white and blue on his septic tank company truck. 

"I think it's a great way to spend the holiday, to lift the spirits of people devastated by the Camp Fire. Just remember that Paradise is Paradise, and we will continue the traditions and plug away." 

Mark Cobb, Parks Supervisor for Paradise Rec and Park District represented his organization in this year's parade. 

"If anything, we represent hope. We're here, we are rebuilding, and we are not going anywhere," said Cobb.

Anywhere from 20 to 25 contestants are expected in tonight's parade. The route will run from Pearson up the Skyway to the Holiday Market and back. 

Parade organizers are also running a food drive from now to December 20th. People may bring donations to the Paradise Ace Hardware, Nic's on the Skyway, or Smoker's Paradise in Magalia.
