Thousands of viewers and hundreds of paraders joined together for the annual in Stow Wednesday. By the 10 a.m. start time, the temperatures were already approaching 90 degrees.
But the show must go on, and it did.
It looked as if the entire was in the parade, which was probably handy if folks suffered from heat stress.
This year's parade was "A Salute to Girl Scouting ... 100 years strong," and appropriately enough the Girl Scouts cookie float was judged the 2012 Best of Parade.
