The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce held its 10th Annual Christmas Light Parade this past Saturday on West Roundbunch Road.  John Dubose 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-a-way to needy families.  Last Friday, the Ministerial Alliance gave toys to over 400 needy children in the Bridge City/Orangefield area. 

Parade judges Beverly Perry, Charlotte Chiasson, and Melanie B
