Deutschen Pfest Parade
The main Deutschen Pfest Parade starts at the corner of Pfennig and Railroad Avenue and travels down to Main Street. It’s a beautiful time of the year to get out with your neighborhood organization, church group or sports league, hear those high school bands and of course, check out those beautiful classic cars. Use your best parade wave and have a blast at the Annual Deutschen Pfest Parade.
This year’s parade marshal is Austin KEYE news anchor, Fred Cantu.
