ROCHESTER, Minn. - The Rochesterfest Grand Parade kicked off at 2 PM on Saturday.

The sides of the streets were packed with spectators lounging on blankets or in lawn chairs.

Rochester native Josh Mason recently moved his family back to Rochester after 6 years, just in time for his wife and kids to experience the parade he enjoyed growing up.

"It's awesome. I got my family here, a couple kids and wife. They get to experience it for the first time," explains Mason.
