It was a Star-Spangled Saturday in Sunnyside as the neighborhood gathered to pay tribute to the American flag at the annual Flag Day Parade.

As it has been for many years, the event was sponsored by the Sunnyside Kiwanis Club. The parade route took marchers along Greenpoint Avenue to Joe Sabba Park at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue.

Students from area schools and JROTC programs took part in the parade, as did veterans, military serviceman and Sunnyside business owners, civic organizations and area officials.

Welcome to the discussion.
