I hope everyone is planning on attending (if not participating in!) the upcoming annual 4th of July Parade and Celebration on Monday, July 4th!
The parade will start at 10am at the Galveston Railroad Museum (check 'em out - they're open 7 days a week now!) and will end at the same place with FREE hot dogs and lemonade - plus an awards ceremony for the parade entries!
IBC will be there again with the Bathing Beauties of the Galveston Island Beach Revue and we invite you to come catch some beads, eat some dogs and celebrate the birthday of our country.

And a gigantic thanks to our armed forces - past, present and future for serving to protect this place for all of us.
