The Texas Citrus Fiesta Parade of Oranges attracted tens of thousands of spectators as over 200 floats, bands, marching units and other parade entries proceeded down Conway Avenue in Mission Saturday. Rev. Roy Snipes, the iconic priest from Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, leads the church procession on horseback, representing the seven priests who formed the “Cavalry of Christ” over 100 years ago.
