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!"

Others thankful for the chance to celebrate our country's freedom. "It's a great country that we live in glad to be free and that's what July 4th means to us," says one parade watcher.

"A lot of people paid the price for our freedom to be free in this country like this," says another.

Our freedom thanks to servicemen like Korean War Veteran Jack Whitehead who looks on reminiscing about his past life as a U.S. Marine.

"I was going through boot camp, 4th of July in San Diego and the Navy put on a big fireworks display. Despite hot temperatures folks stuck around for the street fair that followed enjoying good times and of course great food. Festivities conclude with a street fair, live music in Mackenzie Park and of course, the Gandy's Fireworks Extravaganza.
