Parade-goers were lining up on the streets of Wilmington on Monday to see the marching bands and marching workers at the annual Labor Day Parade.

The parade has been a tradition in the area for 37 years. Labor leaders and laborers take part marching along Avalon Boulevard, while revelers watch on the sidelines to cheer on the participants.

Along with the parade, labor and political leaders spoke about the state of organized labor and how it will play a role in getting people out to vote in the next presidential election.

Many touched on the Hanjin shipping bankruptcy that affects union workers locally.
