Celebrating the past
Parade marshal Marcy Mathews Ward Thomas waves from a Bentley as she leads the parade that was part of the Old Town Festival on Saturday, Nov. 25. Bagpipers, including Port Aransas City Councilman Rick Pratt, fall in behind the Bentley. The parade also included Boy Scouts, classic cars, paraders in golf carts,
wagons led by scooters and more. The route traversed historic Old Town and ended at the Tarpon Inn courtyard with a presentation by the Texas State Historical Commission. The festival included story telling, shopping and a street dance. See story and more photos on Page 1B.
