“We’re just out here to celebrate the people who fought for our country and gave us the opportunity to be here on a rainy day,” explained John White, a resident of Newtown Borough who comes to the parade every year.

“We were still going to come regardless of the rain,” said Pat, a resident of Holland who makes an effort to come out to the parade with her husband every year.

Last year’s parade was cancelled due to rain.
