South side hosts annual Fourth of July parade

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Lansingville Block Watch held its annual Fourth of July parade Sunday on the south side of Youngstown.

The festivities began at Saint Matthias Church and continued down neighborhood streets before ending at Adams School.

The event is held to gather neighbors and friends and create a sense of pride in the community.

“We need to get together to love one another, to share, to have some enjoyment today. There is so much pressure and bad things happening. Today is a good day to celebrate a country that we love that we live in,” said Ken Stanislaw, president of the Lansingville Block Watch.

The event ended with a picnic at Adams School.
