Hundreds turn out to honor Madison County first responders
Hundreds of people turned out to Reunion Parkway on Thursday evening for a Madison County Parade of Honor to show support for the county's first responders.
Volunteers gave out American flags to spectators and collected money to support the county's first responders.
Representatives from every law enforcement and fire department in the county were on hand to parade along the parkway as spectators cheered and waved flags in support.
The parade was just one of several events held throughout the county as part of Madison County Law Enforcement Appreciation Week.
