The 2015 King William Fair was a tremendous success! Despite the early morning thunderstorm, the parade departed on time, the sky cleared, and the temperature rose. When I walked out at 6:00 a.m., there was much concern in the Fair zone with standing water, collapsed booths and uncertain weather. The first Fair staff member I saw out at that time was Fair Coordinator Carol Jackson in her husband’s golf rain suit directing sponsors and vendors at King William Park. At 8:30 a.m., Sue Duffy was the drill sergeant on Eagleland getting everyone lined up and all of the floats and folks in position to start the parade. It started on time with the Brackenridge High School band leading the way, and was royally greeted by the many parade watchers throughout the route.
