This home movie captures scenes of the Cummings family at home and in their community in El Paso throughout the early 1940s. The family celebrates Easter, has a birthday party, dances in costume in the yard, plays in the snow, and visits a farm where they are chased by geese. Of particular note are scenes of a local festival, likely the May Festival of 1944, which includes a small parade, cultural dances, and a May Pole. Scenes of a horse show are also included. Please note: several dancers at the May Festival are in blackface make-up. The Texas Archive of the Moving Image does not condone this practice, but presents this film as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as to claim this racist behavior never existed.
