Thousands throng downtown for Modesto institution: Fourth of July parade

Thousands of people lined downtown streets Friday to see a Modesto institution – the city’s 140th annual Fourth of July Parade. They watched a cross section of the community pass before them, from a beauty queen in a Corvette and Cub Scouts on bicycles to politicians on floats and cheerleaders handing out candy. The Modesto Kiwanis Club organized the parade, which featured about 120 entries.
