Crowds of people gathered all along Main Avenue in downtown to get a close look at White Cloud's 16th Birthday Parade.
The color guard led the way from Fifth Street North all the way down to McElroy Park with several local clubs, organizations, churches, politicians and more in tote behind during the course of the parade.
Spectators of all ages enjoyed a warm-weathered morning, with temperatures hovering around 75 degrees as of the 9:30 a.m. start of the parade.
Kids lined the streets as many of the parade vehicles and floats were handing out candy treats all along Main Avenue.
