61st Annual Labor Day Parade

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A lot of us celebrating our jobs today for labor day with Rockford's annual Labor Day Parade.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to watch the floats make their way through downtown Rockford and of course collect candy. The theme this year is "Rockford, Unions, Democracy, America." It's a chance for everyone to honor workers for their contributions to our area economy.

"It's a big deal. I feel like if it wasn't for the union members, I feel like we wouldn't have much going on with the economy today,” Corinne Castle, who was watching the parade, said.
