The parade was a sea of red, white and blue with more than 70 character-themed floats, marching bands, dance troops, dignitaries and live entertainment.

“We've lived here for 10 years and we've been 10 years. We love it! It is a tradition. I was probably the first one out here this morning. My husband drops me off, I set up all the stuff, get ready for the kids to come," mom and Summerlin resident Cindy Trussel said.
