This year's Fourth of July parade was a grand success. For me, it started at the Fire Station on Austin Street, where I met D.J., a Seguin intern who volunteered to help with the parade. He drove me around the streets where the participants were lining up, and I got to meet a lot of them while photographing the whole event.
Two of the firefighters at the Austin Street station stood next to the antique fire truck they would drive in the parade.
The gentleman on the left has been driving grand marshals in the parade for a very long time. His chevy is a show-stopper on it's own!
This year, the Seguin Matador band was chosen to be the grand marshal of the parade. Bill and Denise Wilcox represented the band by riding in the red chevy, and anyone who is involved with the band knows how much Bill and Denise love the Matador band.
Tres Hewell was one of many local volunteers who helped make the parade a success. It should be noted that folks don't usually see Tres sporting such wild socks, but he carried it off.
Parade royalty has to wait as long as it takes for their turn to line up and travel the parade route. These lovely young women waited comfortably in the shade for their turn.
This butterscotch yellow Ford already had a blue ribbon to show off. I can see why. It's a great car, and the owners were more than happy to stand next to it for me while I took their photo.
