Neighbors living off Starlight Drive in Temple spent two weeks turning the street blue before inviting law enforcement to meet the community Sunday night.
TEMPLE, Texas — For two weeks, neighbors living off Starlight Drive in Temple have been buying blue light bulbs to replace the normal outdoor lights across the street. Some even hung up blue Christmas lights. Organizer Chad Horton said some people even ordered the lights on Amazon, and they moved the originally planed event to wait till everyone was ready.
The plan was to create a “blue out” and host an event to express support for law enforcement officers.
“We going to have it last Sunday, some things changed, people still had deliveries coming for their blue light bulbs,” Horton said. “At least over forty families are going to participate.”
The community invited multiple police departments to the area in front of the local pool Sunday
