Hundreds of people lined the streets to get a glimpse of the ladies who will be competing this week for the title of Miss Ohio.
Parade Coordinator Jeff Angelini said despite a few changes in this years festivities, everything still ran smoothly.
There were 146 entries in the parade, many of whom were there supporting their favorite contestant. Miss Ohio 1962 and Miss America 1963, Jackie Mayer, was the parade Grand Marshall.
