DENISON, TX----- Today, Texomans paid tribute to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.

Dozens of floats and cars lined Denison's Main Street and hundreds showed up to watch the Memorial Day parade downtown.

Parade watchers said the parade is a good way to honor those who serve our country and to reflect on what today is really about.

"I grew up in the military," Ellen Walker said. "I've seen the sacrifices that they've made living in foreign countries and I think they are a group of people that need to be remembered always."

This year's parade featured the Denison High School band and drill team, cars, trucks, horses and several different organizations.

Cash prizes were awarded for best float, car or motorcycle and equestrian group.
