Parma parade kicks off Fourth of July festivities

PARMA, Ohio – It wouldn't have been the Fourth of July in Parma without the Fourth of July Parade.

Residents lined Ridge Road from Snow Road south to Ridgewood for the annual parade, which stepped off on Essen Avenue starting at 10 a.m. Although it was a cloudy day, it didn't dampen the patriotic spirits celebrating the Declaration of Independence.

The Parma Senior High School Marching Band played musical selections along the parade. Mark Holan/special to cleveland.com 

The Gung-Ho Vets Marine Corps League members were the color guard of the parade.

Mayor Tim DeGeeter and all the members of council took part in the parade, as well as the bands from all three high schools. The Parma Senior High Redmen Marching Band members, in particular, distinguished themselves with their musical talents.

Kids picked up the candy that was tossed by the council members and their supporters. American flags were in abundance in the crowd, and the residents brought their own lawn chairs to sit curbside.

The Parma Fire Department was well represented with a hook and ladder and a vintage fire truck.

All in all, the parade set the tone for the city's celebration of our country's Independence Day.
