JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- The Jeffersonville "Celebrating Freedom" parade braved the rain on Independence Day.

The parade processed along Spring Street from the riverfront to Warder Park, where organizers held a brief patriotic ceremony at the gazebo.

Boy Scouts carried a large American flag, learning the importance of freedom.

"We just think it's really important that the boys see that the show goes on no matter what the rain and we're having a good time supporting our country," said scout leader Garry Nokes.

WDRB's Jeremy Kappell emceed at the parade, riding along in a Jeep.

The celebration also included the city's first hot dog eating contest.
