Weather cooperates for Labor Day parade

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - People were appreciative for Monday’s sunny weather to take in Kansas City’s Labor Day parade.

Hundreds turned out for the annual parade. It kicked off at 11 a.m.

Dozens of floats, trucks, and cars were part of the parade.

It went down Main Street to 31st Street and eventually ended at Penn Valley Park.

The topic of the poor employment rate in a recovering economy remained at the forefront of people's minds.

“It's going to take some time, but I think that in a few years things will get back to the way they should be,” Phil Butler, a parade participant, said.

People enjoy tethered rides in a hot air balloon after the parade.
