As one of the most long-standing traditions in East Texas, the Rose Parade is also one of the most highly attended events.
Thousands of spectators lined Front Street Saturday morning, hoping to get a glimpse of all the beautiful floats. A number of East Texas bands helped entertain the crowds as well as many community groups that participated in the parade.
Organizers say the nice weather helped make this one of the most successful parades in recent years. Over 120 units participated in this years parade.
