East Texans celebrate 235 years of American heritage

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - A few East Texans have already begun celebrating. They took to the streets Monday morning to celebrate 235 years worth of American heritage.

From fire trucks, to tractors---just about everything was decked out in the red, white and blue for this patriotic parade near Mineola.

Dozens of folks participated in a patriotic parade around Lake Holbrook in Wood County.

It's the second year organizers put on the parade on CR2232, and they say it's quickly becoming a tradition.

Members of the Mineola Volunteer Fire Department are also scheduled to put on a fireworks display at the civic center around sunset.
