(Seguin) -- Families are invited to celebrate Independence Day in patriotic style kicking-off KWED’s Freedom Fiesta with the Guadalupe County Republican Women’s annual Kiddie Parade on Saturday, July 1.
The Pledge to the flag and National Anthem will mark the beginning of Freedom Fiesta at 6:00 PM. Kids will line up at 6:15 for the 6:30 PM parade kick-off.  Families should gather near the Nolte Street stage in front of Wells Fargo in downtown Seguin until it’s time to line up for the big event. Those wishing to watch the festivities and cheer on the patriotic participants should line both sides of River Street, spreading out across the whole parade route while Uncle Sam, also known as State Representative John Kuempel, leads the way marching around the Freedom Fiesta grounds.
“Although this event is laid-back and relaxed, participants go all out to dress themselves up and to decorate their bikes, trikes, wagons and electric riding toys. The main point is to celebrate our great nation, but kids will also be competing for the two most patriotic entries in one of three categories,” said Kelly Follis, GCRW member and parade organizer.
“This year’s judges are County Treasurer Linda Douglass, City Councilman Fonda Mathis and Candidate for Justice, 4th Court of Appeals, Shane Stolarczyk. Announcing and presenting the prizes to our winners will be Seguin Mayor Don Keil and Guadalupe County Judge Kyle Kutscher. The event’s official photographer is District Judge Bill Old.”
Any decorated entry is welcome in any of the 3 categories: Self-Powered Riders (bikes/scooters), Walkers (including wagons & strollers), and Motorized Entries. There is no registration required and no fee for this event. Entries should arrive between 5:45 and 6:15 on Saturday. Contact Kelly Follis with any questions at 830.305.1534 or
