2024 Independence Day Parade – Austin, Texas

After finishing my Rodeo Austin coverage yesterday, I’m featuring a photo I shot last week during a neighborhood Independence Day Parade. This year, the 4th of July fell on a Thursday, and the parade started at around 11 a.m.

Traditionally, a truck from the local fire station leads the parade. However, for some reason, they were late this year. After delaying the parade for 15 minutes, they decided to use a WWII Jeep as the lead vehicle. It looked particularly patriotic, outfitted with a generous flag.

The parade route zigzagged through the neighborhood and ended up at the local park, followed by kids on scooters and bikes and mixed in with adult supervision.
