All Scouts, volunteers, and families are invited to celebrate the anniversary of Scouting in the United States with our annual parade through downtown Austin! Join Scouts from across the 18 councils in Texas as we demonstrate Scout spirit via floats, marching, cheering, and music. After the parade up Congress Avenue, participate in the Scout Spirit Rally on the south steps of the Capitol and let everyone know you’re proud to be a Scout! Then head into the House of Representatives’ chamber and hear the delegates’ reports across the state, plus comments from an elected state lawmaker who serves as our honored guest for the day. In the past, the Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, and other leaders have served as the honored guest.
