Parade moves east to 4th on Broadway's new location in Mackenzie Park
Lubbock’s Fourth of July kicked off with flags, balloons and a patriotic ape.
“I liked the gorilla,” said Jacob Kelly, 4, describing a character on one of the 21 floats in the city’s annual 4th on Broadway parade.
Hundreds of visitors lined East Broadway on Saturday morning to watch the event, which opened a full day of festivities. Because of the crowd size, many stood on tip-toes or sat on parents’ shoulders.
