(West Seneca, N.Y.) Thousands of Western New Yorkers took advantage of the nice weather to be part of special Memorial Day parades.

For many families, it is a ritual that they take part in every year.

And for veterans, the parades help remember the men and women who have sacrificed and done so much to keep the country free.
