CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — This weekend will be packed with a variety of events across the Coastal Bend.
Here’s a quick six-pack to remember as you plan your weekend activities.
- I LOVE A PARADE: Thousands will flock downtown to watching the annual Children’s Parade and the lighting of the Tree of Lights in downtown Corpus Christi. There’s a children’s parade, snowball fights, the illuminated boat parade and of the course the annual lighting of the Christmas tree. Check this out here for all of the information. And if you can’t make it downtown, watch our coverage of all the activities. Check out their website for more information at http://harborlightscc.com/
- REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR: The USS Lexington Museum will conduct a remembrance ceremony of the Pearl Harbor bombing at 2 p.m. Saturday at the ship.
