Trump Pence sign

Local Republicans are planning a vehicle caravan on Saturday in support of President Donald Trump.

Cars will begin lining up at the Victoria Community Center at 9 a.m.

“The purpose is to build enthusiasm for the presidential election and make sure people vote,” said Bill Pozzi, chairman of the Victoria County Republican Party.

Cars will depart from the Community Center at 10 a.m., Pozzi said. The caravan will head down North Street and onto Main Street wind through town and end up near the Victoria Mall.

Pozzi expects “Crossroads-wide support” at the event, including several dozen vehicles from DeWitt and Matagorda counties.

A Facebook post from the Victoria County Republican Party encouraged people from surrounding towns to participate.

There will be lots of red cars, Pozzi said, and the county GOP is distributing flags and signs in anticipation of the event.

Victoria Police spokesman David Brogger said participants in the parade should make sure to obey all traffic laws and keep a safe following distance between each vehicle.
