The parade route was down Main Street. Some of the parade participants included police and fire stations in Cherokee County, local school bands, and Miss Galena pageant hopefuls.
Galena resident Lori Gabrielson said the event lets people come to the city to see the improvements and everything the city has worked hard for.
"I think we're all so very proud of our town now," Gabrielson said. "And we just enjoy having everybody around and be able to see what Galena is all about."
Galena Days celebrates the birthday of the city. Galena is now 137 years old.
