The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce held its 9th Annual Christmas Light Parade Saturday, December 2nd on West Roundbunch Road. Moe Litton led out this year’s parade as the Grand Marshall. “This year’s parade had the most entries and was the best attended parade Bridge City has ever had. Participants came from all over Southeast Texas to take part in the fun and festive event”, said Lucy Fields, Parade Chairman. Each year, parade participants donate new unwrapped toys for the Bridge City/Orangefield Ministerial Alliance’s Christmas toy give away to needy families. Last Friday, the Ministerial Alliance gave toys to over 400 needy children in the Bridge City/Orangefield area.
Parade Winners received their trophies on Tuesday, December 12th at the Chamber’s Networking Coffee held at Bridge City High School. Mayor David Rutledge began a new tradition this year of awarding a Mayor’s Trophy and $200 prize. Parade Marshall Moe Litton presented the trophies to the remaining parade winners.
