Thursday was kickoff day for the 67th annual Threshermen's Reunion and Stampede in Austin. For many, this event is a tradition to attend and it's one of the biggest in the area each year. Day one featured all kinds of activities while the Sean Taylor Band performed two great shows. The first day of the event also happened to be his birthday.

"It's always great to get out to this event and to be able to perform here on my birthday makes it extra special."

Of course, the clay bake cinnamon buns are always a hit, the Pioneer power parade was well attended, and the rodeo went off without a hitch.

Check out the Celebrate Summer pictures below, plus we will be back on Saturday to take even more. The event runs right through to the end of the day Sunday. Kendra Kay and her band will be the headline entertainers at the event Friday.
