The 13th annual Wise County Toy Run is Sunday, Dec. 2. Registration begins at 10 a.m. at the McCarroll Middle School parking lot, just off FM 51 South. The parade of bikes starts at 12:30 p.m. and ends at Bridgeport’s City Park shelter house.

Coffee and donuts will be served in the morning and “Willie’s Famous Chili” will be dished up free on the Bridgeport end of the run. Bikers can register for $5 and be in the running for door prizes, a 50-50 auction and awards including “Best Dresser,” “Best Custom,” “Best Cruiser” and “Best Metric Motorcycle.” The top three in each category get plaques.

Whether you ride or not, all it takes is a $10 donation or a new, unwrapped toy per person to get involved.

This year’s Wise County Toy Run will once again feature Biker Santa and a police escort from Decatur to Bridgeport. A drawing will be held for an enclosed 14-foot v-nose trailer, with tickets on sale at $10 each at Bridgeport Automotive. A maximum of 2,000 tickets will be sold.

Those who would like to make donations may send them to Wise County Toy Run, P.O. Box 891, Bridgeport, TX, 76431.
