LIMA — Most Americans receive a well-deserved day off each year on Labor Day.

Lima Labor Day Parade chairman Britt Munson said the annual event is meant to allow those hard workers in the Lima region to celebrate the event with their families.

“The parade is about organized labor,” Munson said. “It is in honor of Labor Day, but it is also about families. People can get out and enjoy a fun parade with their families.”

The approximately two-hour parade will start at Northland Plaza and make its way to Town Square downtown. The parade annually draws what Munson described as “thousands of people” to the area. More than 70 entries are registered. The parade will feature many business and organized labor-supported floats and will also feature many local high school bands.

“Labor is always out there supporting local families,” Munson said. “This parade is meant to show what the labor force means to local families. We look forward to it every year, and the local unions always support it.”
