TVE rodeo parade draws large crowd to Liberty

Members of the Liberty County Sheriff's Office and the Pct. 5 Constable's Office made up an honor guard that marched in the TVE Rodeo Parade on Wednesday, Oct. 17, in downtown Liberty.

Hundreds of people gathered along several blocks of Liberty, Texas, on Wednesday, Oct. 17, for the TVE Rodeo Parade. The weather, also an uncertainty during TVE events, was cool and crisp, and not even a steady mist could dampen the spirits of the crowd.

They cheered as bands, cheerleaders and athletes from Dayton, Liberty, Hardin and Hull-Daisetta passed by, calling out the names of their friends and relatives.

Oliver the Watusi, with his distinctive, enormous horns, was accompanied by his owner, Vincent Browning of Raywood. Oliver, a mainstay of the rodeo parades, delighted children as they marched by.

Introducing the parade entries was emcee Sandra Sterling, who also announces at the TVE Baby Parade each year.
