Large crowds turned out on a beautiful morning to check out all the units that made up the growing Labor Day parade in downtown Lima.
The largest contingent in the parade was the group from the Lima city schools.
The district has a levy on the November ballot.
The Lima Senior band, the entire football team and teachers and staff walked the 1.6 mile parade route to show off their school and community pride.
There was a Lima built Abrams tank that caught everyone's eye in the parade.
Plenty of high school bands, Lima fire trucks, candidates. All things that make the Labor Day parade special.
The parade lasted for about an hour and a half.
New to the parade this year, after 75 years of existence the Bradfield Community Center had a drill team in the parade, putting on a show for the crowd.
The Grand Marshal of this years parade was Larry Donaldson, retired president of the United Auto Workers local 2147 at General Dynamics.
