This footage captures scenes of Brenham’s Maifest parade, a local festival that celebrates the town’s German heritage. The town looks on as marching bands and floats pulled by tractors pass by in the parade. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
