The City of Alvin celebrates its founding with a Festival. Still technically mid-summer, but that did not stop local parade enthusiasts to give it their all.

I also learned that the 1823 Brazoria Militia never actually disbanded since its founding. Their descendants has since revived the organization and has been travelling around with full on regalia and real firing of canons of the period. Very cool.
