Girl Scouts illuminating Biloxi Ocean Springs Bridge for annual Glow Walk

Driving down the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge Saturday night you may have noticed a glow from the pedestrian walkway.

That’s because hundreds of Girl Scouts were illuminating the night during the annual Glow Walk. The girls walk the bridge every year in October to honor their organization’s founder Juliette Gordon-Low. Her birthday is October 31st.

There are dozens of Girl Scout troops across the Coast and these events are a fun way for scouts to connect with others outside their own troop.

News 25 spoke to a couple who enjoyed making new friends and seeing how bright they can be when they work together. Girl Scout Daisy Courteaux said, “It’s great to see and meet other troops. Meeting them is glorious because seeing other troops and meeting is just glorious because all of us are Girl Scouts. So, we belong to meet each other.”

Girl Scout Samantha Flach said, “My favorite part was seeing all of the glow sticks and how pretty the lights are. It was really just magical.”

The Girl Scouts are in the middle of their recruitment season. Leaders says every girl has a troop. If you have a child that would like to join visit gsgms.org.
