The Parks and Recreation Elves are busy planning the 3rd Annual HomeTown Christmas Celebration!

This year’s celebration includes the annual Lighted Christmas Parade and the Wilderness Trail of Lights.

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Riverside Park by bringing back the ever-popular Wilderness Trail of Lights.  

Show your Bay City and Matagorda County spirit by becoming a part of the month-long activities.  We are offering sites in the Wilderness for schools, non-profits, government agencies and businesses to decorate for duration of the Trail of Lights.   

Join us as we light up Riverside Park with Christmas lights and scenes.  

We hope that you will join the Bay City Parks and Recreation and be a part of the Annual HomeTown Christmas Celebration. Mark your calendars, tell all your friends about HomeTown Bay City for Christmas Fun!
