Thousands of Clevelanders took the day off to celebrate the Labor Day holiday on Monday but the 44th annual parade had a special feeling this year.
Parade goers and organizers paid their respects to congressman Louis Stokes, who passed away last month.
Congressman Stokes was part of the group that started the parade and was surely missed this year.
“I think at some point we have to say thank you, and that’s what we’re doing today,” said Union Representative Dwayne Keef.
Thousands of people lined the streets in Cleveland’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood to celebrate the community and those who serve in it.
Cleveland Heights resident Erose Ferguson hasn’t missed a parade yet and she said the day is all about taking a step back and recognizing the working man.
