TLU Baseball team to lead 4th of July Parade

SEGUIN, Texas – The countdown has officially started! We’re less than a month away from our city’s lineup of traditional 4th of July festivities including Freedom Fiesta, fireworks and the 4th of July Parade!  Mayor Don Keil is excited to kick things off by announcing his pick to lead the parade – the TLU Baseball team!

“When choosing a parade marshal for any of our parades, I try to pick a person or group who has brought notoriety to our great city.  By going to the D-3 World Series, the TLU Bulldogs gave our city tons of national exposure,” said Keil.

The long holiday starts on Saturday June 30th with Freedom Fiesta in Central Park followed by a patriotic concert in Central Park on Sunday evening. The fireworks fiesta is set for Tuesday, July 3rd starting at 9:30 pm. On July 4th at 10 am, the annual parade rolls through downtown with the baseball team leading the way.

“These young men’s character, skills and determination were a marvelous example of the great, young people who attend our own first-rate university right here in Seguin. When a city of our size can tout a highly-rated university, and display high-quality young people such as the Bulldogs, and claim them as our own, it is advertising that money can’t buy,” said Keil.
