The 4th of July Parade in Seguin is a certified Big Deal. Entrants come from all over the surrounding counties to drive down Austin St. in front of crowd lined businesses. It’s the closest Guadalupe county will ever get to a Royal Wedding.
I can remember as kid the Shriner Cars zooming around in their s-curves. Candy was always thrown from the tops of the floats, and we would scramble after Tootsie Rolls in little mobs. And then of course, Uncle Sam walking on stilts in a royal blue and patriotic red suit waving to the citizens of Seguin. That was the Parade of my youth.
The parade has morphed into an capital E Event. There are now VIP Sections and viewing parties with elevated trailers, tiki bars, and grandstands. Spectators line the streets 4 and 5 deep. Maybe this year was different because we had the unveiling of the new Worlds Largest Pecan.
And actually the parade itself was entertaining. Our group had a good time commenting and critiquing the flow of Americana. From the aqua-car to the grammatical errors, to the glitz and glamour of fair queens and pageant winners. The photos probably do better demonstrating this aspect.
I think we will be back next year.
