PLYMOUTH − Rain and drizzle didn't prevent people from coming out to watch Plymouth's long-running America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration Parade as it marched and rolled past spectators Saturday.

The parade kicked off with four Apache helicopters passing high above the crowd before everyone turned their eyes back to Water Street to watch the mix of expertly designed floats and a steady stream of marchers and musicians.

The theme this year was "The Price of Freedom" in honor of all military members both active and retired, a number of whom marched alongside community members and leaders and a host of people dressed in their Colonial best.

Classic cars' horns sounded as they passed the cheering crowds of people in ponchos and umbrellas.

A village featured historical reenactors, giving attendees both a visual thrill and a lesson in America's long and varied history.

While a large crowd turned out, Plymouth police said the event was problem free from a law enforcement perspective.

Anyone interested in watching the parade who didn't get to see or attend it Saturday can download the Very Local app to stream the broadcast from WCVB Channel 5.
