Juneteenth and battle of the bands

Today at the wonderful Juneteenth parade, we saw a small preview of tonight’s battle of the bands. The Austin All-Star Band was a hometown favorite, and the Houston All-Star Band was a very large aggregation and also a treat to see and hear.

Local politicians were very much in evidence. So were church groups and social and charitable organizations. It was a treat to see the Wells Fargo coach, drawn by four hourses. It seemed that there were more gaited horses than ever. We were too busy viewing and marching to get many pictures, but there are some. There are now five unedited videos on line; see the Austin All-Stars and the Houston All-Stars.

The Battle of the Bands is tonight at Nelson Field, 7200 Berkman Drive, beginning at 6 pm.
