Multicultural Fest & Parade
2003 Multicultural Fest & Parade was a huge
success. Spring Branch Super Neighborhoods,
in partnership with Wal-Mart and the City of
Houston, held the first annual Multicultural Fest Parade. Visit the Image
Gallery to "see the fun".
Parade began at 10:30 am at Wal-Mart Neighborhood
Market (7960 Long Point) going West on Long
Point 1.6 miles
through the historical heart of Spring Branch,
to St. Peters Church. The Parade’s theme,
“Spring Branch History” honored
Spring Branch’s pioneer founding families
by including their heirs prominently in the
parade also included local school marching bands,
Scout Troops, floats from civic associations,
businesses, and churches, horse drawn carriages,
antique and specialty vehicles, and neighbors
dressed in 1800’s period costume. It was
a spectacular display for Spring Branch and
took place on a beautiful day for a parade.
We hope you came out for the fun!
