Everybody loves a parade

Captain America-themed float appeared in the Flushing Summerfest Parade dedicated to Braden “Buddy” Miller, a middle schooler at New Lothrop Elementary. The theme this year — “Hometown Heroes” — fits squarely with Miller’s courage in battling

DPIG, a rare and often fatal form of childhood brain cancer. “Team Buddy,” a group dedicated to fundraising for the Miller fam ily, was started by a Flushing resident.



Below, volunteers from the City of Flushing’s Fire Department wave and toss out candy to families attending the parade. The night closed with a blaring of sirens from the city and township’s police cars and fire trucks.
