ALBANY, N.Y. -- The City of Albany kicks off Memorial Day with its annual parade.
The parade stepped off at 9:30 a.m. Monday at Patridge Street and Central Avenue.
Several groups marched - local veterans, families of fallen soldiers, and community marching bands, to name a few - as parade goers looked on.
Organizers said they hope the message of Memorial Day is something that veterans feel throughout the year.
Ednamae Arnos, Dept. of Veterans Affairs Program Support Assistant, said, "It's always important to honor our veterans. We try to do it every day at work. But it's really nice to have a nice turnout and tell them how much we appreciate everything they have done for us and that we want to continue doing things for them."
A ceremony at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Lafayette Park capped off the parade.
