Celebrating the Fourth of July, parade style
Paradegoers packed areas of the route for the annual Brainerd/Baxter Fourth of July parade.
The breeze, mid-70s and overcast skies made for comfortable parade watching. The sun broke through the clouds as the last parade units were returning to the staging area in time for the bands to play at the stage near the high school.
On Laurel Street in Brainerd along the parade route, a massive flag at the Brainerd Fire Station was waving steadily in a strong southerly wind.
