Cool temperatures and blue skies made for a perfect Labor Day parade in Pana monday morning. A special ceremony marking the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy kicked off the parade. An actual twisted I-beam from the twin towers will be part of a memorial that will be dedicated at a Pana firehouse this coming weekend. The parade started with a fire engine draped in black and followed by 343 firemen and 60 pollicemen from across the country marking the number of emergency responders who died in the attack. The parade, one of the largest in the state, lasted about two hours and featured entries from marching bands to politicians. Over 20 thousand specaters were expected to enjoy the parade that was broadcast on Genuine Country 94.3 WMKR.
