(Cleveland) - Fireworks are one thing you'll find on the Fourth of July, and also parades.
There were many parades on Independence Day morning, including the annual West Park parade that started and ended in the Kamm's Corners area of Cleveland's West Side.
Balloons, candy, and campaign literature were all part of the parade, as it's an election year for the city of Cleveland, and major candidates for mayor all took part in the parade. Mayor Frank Jackson, Councilmen Jeff Johnson and Zack Reed, and State Rep. Bill Patmon all walked in the parade along Lorain Ave.
