While the current situation with concerns of the coronavirus spread was apparent, this year's Independence Day Parade in Derby on Saturday went on as planned. The crowds were down some and the number of parade participants were off considerably this year. The event took place quickly and was probably done in record time compared to past years. The annual fireworks show at Derby's High Park later that night went on as well. Crowds were strong there and they enjoyed a display that was still as big and brilliant as ever.
