The tent they set up - I guess they knew it would be a long ceremony!
Border Patrol Color Guard and a local Girl Scout troop to help with the Pledges (U.S. and Texas). Bagpipes included. Awesome.
National Trust for Historic Preservation brought out the giant heart for the I Love Texas Courthouses campaign (www.ilovetexascourthouses.org) and Cotulla provided the 100 balloons!
It isn't a party in South Texas until the Mariachis play and the BBQ is served!
Commissioners' Courtroom, newly restored.
Love those doors!!
Newly restored District Courtroom - notice the cork floors!
This rooftop used to be a fenced yard for prisoners, but I'm pretty sure the fence won't go back up now that the courthouse has been restored!
The cakes were done with the Cotulla crest (?) by a local bakery!
