Parades, parties, pomp and circumstance fill 4th of July in El Paso & across country

The national holiday to mark America’s birth is being filled with parades, concerts, and of course, fireworks across both the Borderland and the nation.

In east El Paso, a parade known as ‘the People’s Parade’ hosted by the El Paso del Norte Lions Club made its way Thursday along a route running from Hanks High School on Lee Trevino to Album Park.

Elsewhere, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, New York and other places around the country were holding massive celebrations with big name artists like Jennifer Hudson, Luke Bryan and Carole King.
