Fairview hosted their 37th July 4th parade.

"Going to the parade and getting candy," said Abby, child enjoying the parade.

"Celebrating the Fourth of July," said Zach, child enjoying the parade.

People of all ages came out to Fairview Thursday morning.

"Brings out the kid in me," said Dexter Stewart, Annual Visitor.

"Parades are for everybody, this is a fantastic parade. They've had a lot of new things and different things. The children enjoy it, but I think the adults do too, said Phyllis Wood, Annual Visitor.

It wasn't just locals but people from all over.

"We haven't been to one in a long time, a small town one. Good old American fun," said John McFoy, First Time Visitor..

"I'm here hanging out with my family on the Fourth of July just thanking all our troops that serve in the army and the national guard and everything for us," said Lori Hamilton, PA Resident.

The parade was just the start of the day. They have activities all day.

"We hope to enjoy all the festivities. The music, the speaker, and just seeing friends," said Wood.

"We're going to come down later and play games, said Martina Plants, Ohio Resident.

"And win prizes," said Hamilton.

Even though Thursday is a lot of fun. Everyone needs to remember the importance of this holiday.

"1972 Vietnam, over but not forgotten," said Stewart.

"And our freedom that we have to speak and to worship and to walk and talk and whatever our freedom its
really our freedom. That's what the flag stands for," said Woods.
