Parade, Water Street, 1970s

I've been hopping around a bit on the time era for these photographs.  Here's a parade from the late 1970s, which shows downtown Kerrville as I remember it from my high school years.  On the corner, you can see the old Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital, then J C Penney's, and then Winn's.  I believe the parade was in either 1978 or 1979, and was celebrating Fire Prevention Week.
