This home movie captures scenes of the Battle family living and traveling in Texas in the 1950s, most notably attending a parade in Amarillo celebrating the Tri-State Fair and Rodeo. Members of the Battle family go swimming, attend senior prom, participate in marching band, have family picnics, celebrate the holidays at home and with co-workers. At the rodeo parade, Amarillo and Panhandle citizens march, ride on horseback, and ride in chuck wagons past Amarillo High School downtown.
