Classic cars, marching bands, fire trucks, and even miniature ponies. You name it, they've got it at the annual Mansfield Fourth of July parade. The community came in droves to witness a holiday staple, and celebrate their favorite things about the Fourth of July.

"Number one thing is meeting people, reconnecting with folks, um, and talking to people about the wreath program and Some people know about it and some don't. So that's been very enriching to me," remarked Lynn Van Orden of Wreaths Across America.

The parade traveled through the borough's center, on Main street and then Route 6, before concluding at Smythe Park. The park featured a full row of vendors and eats, along with games for kids and live entertainment. One of the parade participants was Richards Farms, a local sanctuary for ponies and horses, some present were up to 35 years old.

"I think going through the parade and seeing everybody saying, Oh, the ponies, we're so excited to see them, and I guess it just makes the public aware of, there is ponies out there that do need help, unfortunately the way that, The horse/pony world is, a lot of our ponies came to us because they weren't useful anymore," stated Richards Farms founder Dawn Richards.

The borough of Mansfield came together not only to celebrate country, but their community as well. Wrapping up the fun and festivities was a fireworks show that began at dusk.
