This film from the Stroud collection captures autumn events in Killeen. Elementary school children parade through downtown in Halloween costumes, and Killeen High School plays a football game against the Gatesville Hornets. Also on the reel are marching bands and drill teams performing during the half-time. Donor Suzanne Stroud Santo tells the story of the films in this collection: "My family owned the Texan Theatre in Hamilton, Texas. During the Depression, a fellow from Hollywood, down on his luck, sold my grandfather his film equipment. Grandpa would go to community events in Hamilton County and film them, then develop them and have a "showing" to promote business." The family also owned the 281 Drive-In Theatre, the first Drive-In in Texas to install a swimming pool.
