NEW CASTLE — Hundreds turned out downtown on a sunny Saturday morning to salute local veterans.

The annual Veterans Day Parade, hosted by the Lawrence County Veterans Council, stepped off at 11 a.m., featuring marching bands, scout groups, firetrucks and, of course, veterans.

The parade marshal was Chuck Harvey, Veterans Council commander. The parade grand marshal was Rose Mary Sabo Brown.

Another parade will march through downtown New Castle on Thursday as part of Light-Up Night. Festivities are scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m., with the parade stepping off at 7.
