For the 12th year in a row, an East Texas neighborhood got out its lawn chairs and wore red, white and blue for the annual 4th of July Parade. The rain held off just long enough Wednesday morning for the Knollwood community to ride through the neighborhood, located in southern Smith County. Leading the way was the Flint-Gresham Volunteer Fire Department and Champion EMS.
"We are so blessed," said Parade Organizer Diane Knowles. "This has been very great. It was raining when I got up, but I think we got a break."
"I guess it's just the American spirit," said Knollwood resident, Andrew Tollyer. "We are just celebrating, and we are all party animals." After the parade, the children got the chance to go through the fire trucks and ambulance.
