Patriotic fans lined the streets of Mishawaka on Monday to watch fire trucks, marching bands, and veterans make their way to Battell Park.

The young and young at heart gazed at military members walking proudly. Some even held tight to Old Glory.

Onlookers say it's great to see so many people come together to support military members.

"It's great that people do that,” said parade-watcher Gary Detert. “If it wouldn't be for them, we wouldn't be free."

"A lot people associate this town with being really small and not much stuff, but you see a lot of stuff, a lot of people from all around this area and stuff, so I think it's really neat,” said Hanna Sandnas, who also attended the parade.

Congressman Joe Donnelly was also part of Monday’s parade. He walked, waved and wished people a happy Memorial Day.

And a NewsCenter 16 viewer snapped photos of Buchanan's Memorial Day celebration.

Boy Scouts joined local vets, bands, and floats for the annual parade. It was followed by a ceremony at Oak Ridge Cemetery.
