STATEN ISLAND – The 108th Annual Independence Day Parade in Travis on Staten Island took place on July 4th. The celebration, one of the oldest in America, began at noon in front of Public School 26 with ceremonies, speeches, dances, and patriotic songs.

Shortly thereafter, a parade of police, military, fire department, veterans’ clubs, vehicles, local schools and organizations began on Victory Boulevard impressing the thousands of all ages who turned out for the parade to wave flags and celebrate the 4th of July.
