TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The College Hill band provided the beat and cleared the way for a giant American flag to make its way through their neighborhood streets.
"It's fantastic and it goes on generations," said Cheyenne Manpeaker. "We've had a lot of families over the years that have come back into the neighborhoods and it's nice to have everyone involved."
Even four-legged family members get into the act, joining their owners in showing off their patriotic pride.
College Hill started its activities Thursday night with a neighborhood festival that included live music.
