This home movie from Houston captures scenes of a Gonzalez family wedding and the welcome home parade for the astronauts of Apollo XI following the moon landing of July 20, 1969. Scenes of an exuberant Lucy Gonzalez exiting the church open the film before the ticker tape parade down Main Street in Houston. The parade footage includes a float bearing the Apollo 9 Command Module, marching bands, and very brief scenes of the astronauts waving from convertibles.
