WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Those who gave their lives in defense of our freedoms were honored Monday with a parade through downtown Westfield.

The city’s annual Memorial Day Parade stepped off on North Elm Street at 10:00 A.M. The parade works its way over the river and through downtown, before ending with a ceremony on Silver Street.

The American Legion, boy scouts, and bands were some of the groups honoring our veterans killed in service to our country.

Even with the so-so weather, hundreds of people lined the streets of Westfield Monday morning.
