Tonight was the annual Memorial Day parade through downtown Grand Rapids. We had fewer marchers than normal, and the crowds along the sidewalk weren't as big as they've been in the past. I think that was probably because of the strong thunderstorms we had this afternoon and the fact the parade was Tuesday evening rather than Monday morning.

Our route takes us south down Division Ave from the I-196 overpass to Fulton St and then into Veterans Park.
