LCM neighborhood participates in parade during stay-at-home order

Children in the Medford Addition neighborhood stepped out into their driveway Friday night and held flashlights.

ORANGE COUNTY, Texas — Staying in the house can get boring, but neighborhoods across Southeast Texas are making the best of their self-isolated time.

A neighborhood in Little Cypress-Mauriceville held the "The Great Flash Out" to bring a little fun to the area during the statewide stay-at-home order prompted by the coronavirus outbreak.

Children in the Medford Addition neighborhood stepped out into their driveway Friday night and held out flashlights.

To their surprise, the Little Cypress Fire Department came through the area for an impromptu parade.

Southeast Texans are getting more creative and making the best of their time while staying at home. China residents came together for a "neighborhood howl" last week. Teachers at Port Neches-Groves ISD formed a parade to show their students support while they're staying at home. And people across the Golden triangle have been taking "porch portraits."
