Kingsport, Tenn. -

Our region's Independence Day celebrations started Thursday morning in Kingsport. 

It's considered the earliest parade in Northeast Tennessee.

The Mack Riddle American Legion Fourth of July parade had soldiers, veterans, police, firefighters, a congressman, and even some horses.

The crowd was also treated to music by the Dobyns-Bennett High School marching band.
