It's a Parade!
Parades began as part of military tradition. However, because watching a parade is so much fun, parades are often part of celebrations all over the world!
Parades are used by local communities to add a little excitement to holidays like Christmas and the 4th of July. Sometimes, parades are used to honor a group of people - like Veterans. Sometimes, they are used to make people more aware of a specific issue that impacts our world.
There are even parades designed just for special audiences. School bands often participate in competitions to show off their skills.
