The Alief spirit was shining brightly today during the Alief International Parade. Many of Alief’s youth were displaying their talents and Alief pride while representing their schools. AJ Martin students were one of the most eye catching as they walked the parade in outfits from their home countries.
Over 40% of Alief’s residents were born outside of America. So a parade featuring this cultural diversity is most fitting for our community. However that is not to discount the amazing and talented youth that were born right here in Alief who were in full force. We all came together to create a true melting pot united through pride in their community.
The Alief Elsik Band, Hastings Band, Alief Taylor Band and their respective drill teams put on a wonderful show entertaining onlookers with fight songs and cheers!
