The Princess City's 64th Annual Memorial Day Parade was held Monday. The theme was Always Honored, Never Forgotten.

Donning ponchos and rain boots, residents both young and old lined the streets, as veterans and first responders passed by.

For one resident, whose family owns not one, but two homes along the parade route, the event has become somewhat of a yearly reunion.

“We have a lot of friends, a lot of family, they all come over, everybody sits on the porch,” says Mishawaka resident Casey Demonia. “Usually it's nice out, we put out blankets, chairs and everything, but obviously this year it's a little bit dreary. Luckily we got this second house here so we can expand over a little bit and fit in more friends and family, and it's always a good time. We have drinks, sodas, food and everything like that. It's just a lot of fun for a lot of people.”

The parade began at Third and Main Streets, turned left on to Mishawaka Avenue and ended at Battell Park.
