“Parade of Ancestors” March 29th in Port Lavaca

The third annual Parade of Ancestors is planned from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 29 in downtown Port Lavaca. “This is a time for all the cultures to come together and celebrate their heritage,” Rose Ellen Pena, Calhoun County Cultures and Cuisines spokesperson, told the Victoria Advocate. “There is so much history in the Golden Crescent area.”

The walking, non-vehicular parade on Main Street begins at 10 a.m. at South Ann Street and ends at Commerce Street. Attendees are encouraged to dress in costumes that represent their ancestry or any ancestry they like. “Last year, Mike Dobbins came as a Viking, Russell Cain came as LaSalle, Joe Pena came as a camel driver, and Betty Hicks came as an African queen,” Pena said.

Event booths, also on Main Street, will sell ethnic food and hand-crafted items. Entertainment will include ethnic music, dance performances and historical presentations.
