WOODWAY, TX (KXXV) -

Woodway Public Safety celebrated its annual parade to commemorate Independence Day.

Hundreds of Central Texas families took their children and pets to be part of this tradition.

Jayson Mitchell who was with his three daughters has watched the parade with his family for three years. 

"We see neighbors, we see friends and socialize," Mitchell said.

The Mitchells plan to walk the parade next year, which is a tradition for Kevin and Ann Warapius and their dog Daisy.

 "This is our third year. We add to our float every year and we have a good time," Ann Warapius said.

The Fourth of July parade aims celebrate the holiday while bringing the community together. Woodway Public Safety Director Yost Zakhary estimated nearly 1,000 people attended the parade.

“This is a great day for community, a great day for the United States. A great for Woodway, just to get out and celebrate in a safe manner, and really enjoy the freedoms we enjoy in this country that we often take for granted,” Woodway Public Safety Director Yost Zakhary said.

This is the 30th year Woodway Public Safety has been hosting the parade.
