The first Belgrade Christmas Convoy took place in 2020. It consists of dump trucks, semi trucks, garbage trucks, logging trucks, and more, all decorated with colorful Christmas lights and driven through the town of Belgrade.

The Christmas Convoy's route winds through Belgrade streets and neighborhoods, spreading Christmas joy along the way. On Saturday night, thousands of eager spectators lined the streets in anticipation as the convoy made its way through town.

The fun started Friday night, when a Truck Village was set up at Gallatin Speedway, giving residents a chance to meet the drivers and check out the trucks ahead of the big event on Saturday.

Montana was just named one of the most festive states in the country, and with events like the Belgrade Christmas Convoy, that really doesn't come as much of a surprise. Montanans love the holiday season and don't shy away when it comes to spreading Christmas cheer.
