Balmy Weather for 19th Annual Tour De Lites
Unseasonably warm weather with a nice breeze made Saturday December 8, 2012 perfect for children of all ages (0-100) to enjoy the 19th Annual Tour De Lites! The festivities started with a bicycle decorating contest at 6:30PM. This year there were more entries and it looked like folks had a lot of fun decorating their bikes in creative ways! Alisa, Jarod and Ashley were first, second and third place in the child bicycle decorating category. The best Adult Bike was decorated by Brian, second went to Michelle & Tory and Jeannie took third place. Thank you to our judges: Susan Sherrouse, Kendrick Gray and JoAnn Knodell.
At 7:00PM 184 folks on bikes and in two hay wagons left the Independence Park pavilion for the leisurely hour and a half tour through Green Tee Subdivision to view the Christmas lights. The riders then returned to Independence Park to meet Peary the Partridge, drink hot chocolate, eat cookies donated by HEB Plus! and to listen to Christmas Carols. KPB would like to thank Peary the Partridge for visiting with us and patiently letting us take photos. Thanks to our numerous volunteer and to the following sponsors in the photo because without all of your support Keep Pearland Beautiful couldn’t put on this event!
