Independence Day begins with the annual Flag Raising Ceremony in Central Park at 9 am. Music, speakers, pomp and circumstance will remind attendees of the significance of the day.
Crowds of flag-waving people will line Austin Street for the annual parade. The floats roll at 10 am. Past crowd estimates have exceeded 10,000. There will be more than a hundred parade entries including floats from local businesses, elected officials, churches, schools, military representatives, and more.
The City of Seguin asks parade attendees to not block parade route sidewalks with chairs and other items until the morning of the event. To allow for the best parade viewing experience, drivers are asked to not park along the parade route, which includes Austin Street from East College to Nelda Street.
If you plan to save a spot to watch the parade, we ask that you don't put chairs or other place-holders on any sidewalks or streets. Items blocking sidewalks prior to the morning of the parade could be removed by city staff.
