Adults and children alike donned their rain jackets and cheered for veterans, military vehicles, marching bands and local organizations as they paraded along the route.

Nearly 100 floats took part in the 93rd annual Memorial Day parade which made its way down East Dublin-Granville Road and proceeded south on High Street to Cemetery Drive.

The parade began at 10am on Monday.

This year, former Worthington Police Chief Michael Mauger was the speaker and Worthington resident Don Pendell was chaplain.

Several residents were happy to express their thanks and appreciation to our veterans and active military members.

James Morrison of Worthington brought his grandson to the parade and said it was important,"to remember the troops and what they did for us and never to forget."

Just a block down from the Morrison family stood Lisa Konieczynski with her two daughters.

Konieczynski said the parade, "supports the city and when you're involved you want to be there to cheer on everybody that's part of the city."

She added, "it's a nice day just to be a family."
