“Thank you for your service” were words often heard on Biscayne Boulevard on Oct. 30.
First responders, law enforcement, and public workers marched through the first-ever Hometown Heroes Parade in Miami. It was meant to honor those whose lives are on the front lines every day.
A family fest at the FTX Arena was held after the parade to celebrate this event.
“To our first responders and law enforcement officers who protected us during the global health crisis, the pandemic, thank you!” cheered Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
Moments later, she officially declared Oct. 30 to be Hometown Heroes Day.
