FARMINGTON – Excitement and puffs of fluff from cottonwood trees were both in the evening air July 4 as the Rotary Club of Farmington’s Freedom Days Electric Light Parade rolled and marched along Main Street after sundown.

“This year’s Freedom Days Parade was a real crowd pleaser thanks to the imagination of all of the parade participants involved,” the club said via text on July 5.

This Year's Parade Theme was “Support Our Troops.”

The Veteran of the Year was Travis Morrison.
