Edina displayed its pride for country and community July 4 with its annual Independence Day parade on West 50th Street.

More than 100 groups were represented in the procession, including representatives of the military, community organizations, political groups, churches and businesses. Entertainers included jugglers, singers, marching bands, martial artists and performers dressed as super heroes.

Another popular form of entertainment, at least among the youth in attendance, was the feverish collection of all the candy that had been tossed by generous paraders, marking the endurance of a cherished Fourth of July tradition.
