Special to The Star
Published: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 09:17 AM.

It is that time of year again to shine up those golf carts, drag out that garland and plug in those Christmas lights and Inflatable snowmen! 

The 5th Annual Mexico Beach Christmas Golf Cart Parade will be 6 p.m. CT Sunday, Dec. 1 at with line up at 5 p.m. in front of the police station on 14th Street.

Gulf County Sheriff Michael Harrison will serve as Grand Marshal this year and Santa will once again be riding in the fire truck at the end of the parade to greet all the good little boys and girls.  As a special memorial to Candy Daniel each golf cart will be sporting a blue ribbon in recognition of colon cancer awareness.  Candy was very active in Mexico Beach and a big supporter of the golf cart parade. Sadly she lost her fight against colon cancer this year; her daughter will be riding in the parade in her memory.

Gulf Coast Alarm will be providing a commemorative medal to each golf cart as well as the memorial ribbons.  Applications for the parade may be picked up at the Mexico Beach Town Hall, the CDC office and the Mexico Beach Police Department.

If you would like more information please contact:  Traci Gaddis, Parade Chairperson, at 227-6770
