KAMLOOPS — If you’ve never seen dozens of semi-trucks lined up to illuminate the night sky, you should probably check out this unique light show heading to downtown Kamloops this summer.

Hot Nite in the City is celebrating its 25th year in Kamloops from Aug. 9 to 11 and this year organizers are moving the truck light show to downtown Kamloops.

“It’s going to have a different dynamic that it has in the past years,” Sue Adams with the Hot Nite in the City society said.

In the past, the light show has been held in different parts of the city away from downtown to allow participants in the truck show to make noise with their rigs.

“On a few occasions, they have been able to make noise with their horns, rev their engines or whatever the case is," Adams said. “We won’t be doing that this time…it’s going to be a little more quiet.”

Adams said the decision to place the truck light show downtown will allow the focus to be more on the incredible light display.

“What you see are tremendous amounts of very unique lights and they are really impressive,” Adams said, adding the public can expect to see colours such as orange, blue, white, red, purple and much more.

People can expect to see various highway trucks including logging trucks and potentially cranes.

The trucks will be parked downtown on the Friday Night and have their lights on from 9 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. 

For the full schedule for Hot Nite in the City go here. 

The public can expect to see several highway trucks in this year's Friday Night Lights show displaying several unique lights.
