Residents of Fairways Forest are carrying on a tradition of honoring their country and military heroes that began nearly 40 years ago.
The NAS Jacksonville Color Guard led nearly 40 active and retired military personnel marching in the 1.7-mile parade.
The parade also included fire trucks, cars and bicycles decked out with red, white and blue.
The ends with a community picnic with hotdogs and hamburgers, with games and a waterslide for the children.
The neighborhood doesn't just show its patriotism on holidays. American flags are flown year-round in the community.
