Father and son deck out pickup truck with 9,000 Christmas lights

First Published:

A father and son team in Niagara put 9,000 Christmas lights on a pick-up truck to spread joy and raise money for charity. The Joymaker truck was created by Brayden Saplywy and his father Brad.

They say they attached nine strings of lights with more than 2,000 pieces of tape and plugged it into the pick-up.

For three years now they’ve increased the number of lights, and after initially doing it just to put a smile on people’s faces, they started doing it to raise money for a local charity organization called Pelham Cares.

Pelham Cares provides social services, food, and other things for people in need.

Brayden and Brad also take the truck to local nursing homes to spread the Christmas spirit.
