WEST ALLIS-Independence Day celebrations started early on Monday night with the annual parade through downtown West Allis.

Organized by the West Allis, West Milwaukee Recreation Department, this year's theme was "Hats Off to You, The Red, White and Blue."

Nearly 100 units marched, danced or rode by the smiling and flag waving crowds.

CBS 58's Michele McCormack was honored to be among those asked to show their pride in the U.S.A.

A beloved tradition of the parade included a post parade party at Veteran's Memorial Park.

There, families enjoyed food, music, face painting and other entertainment until 10 p.m.
