Big crowd and great weather for 2018 Dogwood parade

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The weather was perfect this morning as thousands of people packed main street in Quincy for the annual Dogwood Parade.

This year's theme was #TeamQuincy.

The floats were designed to celebrate the community and there were more than a hundred entries this year. 

Families said it was the perfect day to get the kids outside and get some candy.

"It's a perfect day. Usually it's rainy or cold and today is a perfect day for the parade. It's so nice that we can bring our family. we can bring our little baby in the stroller. It's something to do for the morning." said Laura Starnes who brought her family to watch the parade.

The WGEM News team also took part in the parade. The team handed out candy and had fun being able to see some of the viewers out on the street.
