Thousands of people crowded State Street Saturday - a downright perfect day for the annual Zoo Parade.
About 100 units hit the pavement in the 42nd annual parade. Clowns, candy, and those famous miniature cars were a big hit with the kids.
Marching bands, motorcycles and even some animals from the Erie Zoo rounded out the parade.
Of course, the WJET-TV and FOX 66 News parade crew was there, candy in hand.
