4th of July Parade – Galveston

Starting at the Galveston Railroad Museum, the Galveston 4th of July Parade wound its way down Postoffice Street to 21st and then back to the museum via The Strand. Participants ranged from the USMC Color Guard, to characters from the Dickens Festival, a mini train from the railroad museum to families on bicycles. Politicians, Mardi Gras Krewes and volunteer seamen from the Tallship Elissa all marched through historic downtown Galveston. Typical of an all American Independence Day parade and celebration, spectators gathered along the streets and cheered as the parade participants marched by.

I emceed the paraded from Mod Coffee Shop on Postoffice as Eddie did his photography thing from across the street. I’m not sure which one of us got bombarded with more beads and candy! What a fun day and what a great time to take a few minutes to reflect on what we celebrate this special day.

Following the parade, there was a great 4th of July party at the Galveston Railroad Museum. Surrounded by the trains of yesteryear, about 500 guests were served free hot dogs, lemonade and Sweet Leaf Iced Tea as we all enjoyed a Galveston favorite, Sparky Koerner’s Jazz Band.
