RESTROOMS AND FOOD
The site has restrooms. The City of Texas City will also have port-a-potties onsite. If you don’t see them, you can go to the Pavilion. (Please refrain from going to local businesses.)
A wash station will be onsite. Please don’t abuse the water and soap!
At the end of the parade, the Showboat Theater will have restrooms open, thanks to the City of Texas City.
LoneStar Sandwiches will be onsite at 10:30 am.
Food and drink will also be available at the end of the parade.
BEAD SALES $50 CASH ONLY.
Beads will be available onsite. $50 cash only. No credit cards or checks. They will be large crawfish bags filled with throw beads. We anticipate you will need 2 bags per person.
Did we say cash only? It’s cash only!
SPECIAL BAND INFORMATION
Bands can enter at Carlos Garza Park from 33rd Street and head to the Pavillion like last year. Have your band there no later than 11:15 am. The buses can go through the park to Palmer Highway. Turn on Sixth Street and park on Fourth Avenue. If you have questions, there will be plenty of traffic crews and police officers to help you navigate.
No street parking. You can park around the start of the parade. Park in the lots provided at the lineup. The last thing we want is to embarrass you because your car is in the way of the parade.
