Due to a TxDOT construction project on the San Antonio Street bridge, the 2019 Comal County Fair Parade will use Seguin Avenue.

The city of New Braunfels will livestream the 2019 Comal County Fair parade beginning at 10:10 a.m. on Sept. 27, according to a city news release.

Viewers that cannot attend in person are encouraged to watch the parade via the city website at or on the official city of New Braunfels Facebook page at

“Staff conducted a Facebook poll to determine interest in the live broadcast,” city of New Braunfels Public Information Officer Sheri Masterson said. “The response indicated that many felt it would be appreciated by those who could not easily attend in person – such as those in assisted living, out of town, working - or in a variety of other circumstances that might keep someone from seeing their children, grandchildren and friends in the parade or from just enjoying all the entries.”

During what is expected to be a 3-hour event, city staff, local personalities, New Braunfels Police Department Communications Coordinator David Ferguson and local musician Yesenia McNett will commentate on the live broadcasts, the release said.

The city announced Aug. 29 that due to construction on the San Antonio Street bridge, the 2019 parade route will follow South Seguin Avenue from Hampe Street northwest to Bridge Street.

Staging for the parade will take place along West Nacogdoches Street from South Guenther Avenue to South Seguin. The parade officially begins at 10 a.m.

“We want to thank our community partners – New Braunfels Utilities and the Chamber of Commerce – for their assistance in providing this entertainment service to the community,” city of New Braunfels Webmaster and Digital Content Creator Tyler Hoffmann said. “We will be broadcasting from the roof of NBU’s downtown offices, so give us a wave and a smile if you pass by during the parade!”
