Everyone in the parade is eligible and anyone can join in the parade – just gather at Milwood Baptist Church around 9:30am and fall in line. Parade kicks off at 10am.
Patriotic Music will begin soon after the parade arrives at the park. We are so very excited to have Austin Civic Wind Ensemble back this year!
