This home movie from the Ramon Galindo collection captures part of the 1963 Washington's Birthday celebration held in Laredo, Texas. Footage includes a colorful parade complete with military displays, intricately choreographed marching and dancing, beauty queens, and floats sponsored by familiar brand names such as Lone Star and Busch beers. Following the parade footage is an impressive bull fight.
