Parade of Lights 2013

 

Makkinga Contracting & Equipment Rentals proudly particiates in the Thunder Bay Police Association's Annual Parade of Lights.  Our amazing team put together a very unique float this year which included lighting up our W900 Kenworth and a General Lee replica from the TV series "The Dukes of Hazard".  Many thanks to the sponsors, volunteers and others who donate their time to make this a magical event. Also, a big thank you to everyone who braves the cold termperatures to support the participants of the parade and all of the charities it supports!
