This 4th of July, Lubbockites celebrated in the annual tradition - the 4th on Broadway parade.
The festivities included something for everyone, from marching bands and bag pipes, to horses and fire trucks.
"We come to see all the people and things that are going on, and seeing how Lubbock is just really progressing more and more," said Becky Hernandez. "We love Lubbock."
"We come for the parade, the food, the kids area," said David Small.
The celebration continues at Mackenzie Park with a free outdoor concert at 7 p.m., followed by the fireworks finale at dark.
