This year’s theme is "The Best of Bridgeton".

The parade will start in the St. Gerard subdivision and proceed west on Natural Bridge, ending in the Target parking lot. The parade will conclude with prizes and trophies being awarded for the best floats and automobiles. The best costume prize will also be presented to one adult and one child displaying the most spirited attire.
