Cool conditions and partly sunny skies were the backdrop for the 12th annual Lexington Blueberry Festival Parade held Sunday afternoon. The Lexington Police Department led the way as the parade stepped off as it winded its way through the village down Clever, Frederick and Plymouth streets, followed by a marching blueberry. This year's parade theme was "Celebrate Local," a tribute to Lexington's locally-owned businesses that are the heart of the community. Various floats, dozens of marching and walking units, the Lexington High School Marching Band, Lexington High School cheerleaders and local dance companies all joined in this year's parade. Lexington's Blueberry Festival is the only one of its kind in Ohio with the annual parade capping off the festival's four-day celebration centered around blueberry foods.
