Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Food, fun and a pparade through Downtown. 

Jeffersonville celebrated the 4th of July with a parade and celebration on Tuesday. 

The rain didn't stop residents from celebrating along Spring Street, where the celebration kicked off at 11 a.m. and ended in Warder Park with a ceremony to honor veterans from every branch of service. 

This year's parade was led by Grand Marshals Jeanne Burke and Les Albro. 

More than forty different organizations marched in this year's parade, which started near Riverside Drive.

A number of Scout Troops, an Honor Guard from the Jeffersonville Police Department and several political party floats, all marched to the beat of live music from the Charlestown High School band and the Alumni Band at Jeff High School. 

Many in attendance say they look forward to the parade and 4th of July celebrations every year. 

"We want to support our city, I've lived in Jeffersonville my entire life and we always want to support what Jeffersonville is doing, I'm happy with the way things are going so we came out to support the city and I brought my grand-kids to see the parade," Sandra Posey said. 

It wouldn't be a 4th of July celebration without face painting and fun for the kids, which is how the day wrapped up in Warder Park.
