In lieu of the city’s annual Mother’s Day cake decorating contest, Missouri City will host a drive-thru Mother’s Day event May 9 from 10 a.m.-noon.

All members of the community are invited to drive through the city hall complex, located at 1522 Texas Parkway, where they will receive a red rose and a commemorative card and meet Missouri City Mayor Yolanda Ford.

Additionally, winners and participants of the city’s card decorating contest will be recognized. Children in grades K-5 are invited to decorate a special card in honor of a loved one and submit a photo of the card and description to the city.

“The annual Mother’s Day cake decorating event is a popular family-oriented event, and we had several inquiries about it this year," HOA Liaison and Event Coordinator Kelly Matte said in a news release. "Given the current situation, we thought to cancel first, but then thought of an innovative way to engage the public in a safe way. We really hope this contest provides a fun way for our children to showcase their talents and also share how much their loved ones mean to them.”

Social distancing guidelines and safety measures will be in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.


Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10.
