4th on Broadway Parade Bigger and Better than Ever

The annual 4th on Broadway parade started first thing Friday morning. Thousands of fans lined the streets of downtown Lubbock to cheer on the floats. With more than 100 entries, both the young and the young at heart had plenty to see at this year's parade. From horses, to marching bands, to their favorite TV faces. Some fans summed up all this excitement in just one word. "Patriotism!"
