Families gather along route to watch Coon Valley parade

COON VALLEY, Wis. (WKBT)– People paraded around Coon Valley as a way to bring some excitement to kids who have been cooped up for a while.

The local police department, fire department, Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance, teachers and staff from Coon Valley Elementary School all went around the route.

For school staff members, it gave them a chance to reconnect with their students face to face.

Residents were invited to sit out with their family to see other community members as they passed by Saturday morning.
