ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Despite the rain on Monday, many lined the streets of Onalaska for the annual Memorial Day parade.
People marched on Sand Lake Road in honor of those who sacrificed their lives. Both the police and fire departments walked as did the Onalaska and Onalaska Luther high school bands marched. The 6 block parade started at the Onalaska american legion which organized the event.
"For me and for others its an opportunity to recognize those that have served and gave up the ultimate sacrifice for us so we are living the way we are today and enjoying the freedoms we do have and they made it all possible," says US Army Veteran, Richard Musolf.
The parade ended at the Onalaska cemetery with a special ceremony.
