News Release
Friday, July 04, 2008

Come Join Us For The Fun!


Come Fourth and join us in the fun at Galveston’s 4th of July Parade and Celebration!


The parade begins at 10am at the Galveston Railroad Museum on 25th Street, heading south and winding its way through historic downtown Galveston, from Postoffice Street to 21st Street, north on 21st Street to Strand, then west on Strand to 25th Street.  Join us along the parade route to celebrate with local civic organizations and families, and salute those who have ensured our nation’s freedom!   The parade will take place (light) rain or shine, but in the event of threatening weather, we will proceed indoors for the festivities.


The parade is immediately followed by a celebration of our nation’s birth in the air-conditioned comfort of Galveston Railroad Museum, 123 25th Street.  The celebration will include musical entertainment by Sparky Koerner and a patriotic program hosted by Joe Huff of Galveston College.  Hot dogs and lemonade refreshments will be provided by our organizers and Sweet Leaf Tea will be on hand to provide their delicious brews.  In addition to free admission to all the Museum’s exhibits, the Railroad Museum will also provide train rides (cost: $5.00) on their SP Diesel Switcher Locomotive!


It’s not too late to participate.  Decorate your bicycle, tricycle, golf cart, skates, horses, wagons, carriages, floats, or any other favorite mode of transportation and join us in the parade!  Strike up the band and march with us!  We welcome all organizations, businesses, civic, church and musical groups, individuals and families.  Participation in the parade is free and fun for the entire family.


Sponsors and organizers of the July Fourth celebration include, Kroger, Sweet Leaf Tea, Galveston College, Galveston County Marine Corps League, Detachment #668, Galveston Lion’s Club, the Sons of the American Revolution - Bernardo Galvez Chapter, the Events Team, Talk of the Bay, and the city of Galveston.
