Every year, thousands of people flock to Seguin to watch the Biggest Small Town Fourth of July Parade.
They line up on Austin Street from north of College Street to the Seguin Events Complex to see their family, friends and community members float on by.
There are businesses, organizations and individuals who take part in the parade each and every year.
There are some new faces and some familiar faces.
Everyone wants the chance to see them, wave and holler “hello” as they pass by.
But we can only all do that if we have a little courtesy for our neighbors and our friends. Share the road.
While yes, we all want that perfect spot that we try to get year round, but don’t block the path.
Don’t put up tents or chairs that cause a tripping hazard or forces people who are in a wheelchair to traverse the street instead of the sidewalk.
Don’t park your vehicle on Austin Street to mark your spot.
When it comes time for the big day, get to know your neighbors for the next couple of hours. Let the kids sit in the front and enjoy the view from a little further back.
And have fun. Because that is what this is all about.
