Light It Up


Two of the most festive holiday events in Wise County are the lighted parades in Bridgeport and Decatur.

The Lights on Halsell Christmas parade is Thursday in downtown Bridgeport. It starts at 6 p.m., and the theme is “Welcome to Who-ville.” If you want to participate, call Bridgeport Main Street at 940-683-3404.

For double the fun, bring your float to Decatur Saturday for its Parade of Lights. Festivities start at 4 p.m. with holiday music, pictures with Santa and snacks. The parade starts at 6 p.m., and shops will stay open late for Moonlight Madness, a holiday shopping event.

Special Delivery


The 19th Annual Wise County Toy Run is Sunday. Hundreds of bikers will meet in Decatur, then ride in force to Bridgeport to deliver toys they’re donating to children in need.

It’s a sight to behold as motorcycles stretch for miles along U.S. 380 during the ride. Registration is 10 a.m. to noon in the parking lot on West Thompson Street, behind the Decatur Public Library. The ride starts at 12:30 p.m., and they will travel with a police escort to Harwood Park Pavilion in Bridgeport.

A chili supper will be served, and there will be raffles and free door prizes for riders. Got questions? Call Jeff Honeycutt, 817-980-1981.

Tour of Homes


If you love to flip through the pages of home and garden magazines, don’t miss the Decatur Woman’s Club Tour of Homes. The annual event, which showcases not only beautiful properties, but also dazzling Christmas decorations, is 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased from any club member; at Patti’s Hair Parlor, 103 W. Business 380; or at iOffice, 1650 FM 51, Suite 300. Proceeds benefit local organizations.

For a list of the homes featured on the tour and details about each stop, see the story in the Nov. 24 edition of the Messenger.
