One great way to commemorate Memorial Day is with a parade. They were happening all over the country this weekend.

Veterans led Mosinee's annual holiday parade, followed by the high school color guard and marching band.

Hundreds showed up to pay respect to those who've served and are serving our country.

And some, make a tradition out of it.

"All our neighbors meet at the same corner every year, we've been doing it for 30 some years and we wouldn't miss it for anything," said Judy Colcord, a Mosinee resident.

Resident Duane Jass makes sure to attend the parade too.

"We always try to come with our family and our son and his wife and two children are on the way, so it's just something we do every year," he said.

The parade flowed down Main Street and ended at the city's cemetery.

Also featured were local boy scout troops, classic cars, and a string of emergency vehicles.
