The annual Patchogue Lions Club’s annual Fourth of July parade stepped off at 10:30 a.m. at West Avenue and Main Street in Patchogue Village and ran through the heart of downtown to around Route 112 to the east.

Before and after the parade, the Atlantic Community Band performed a free concert of Sousa Marches, parade favorites and Broadway show tunes under the Patchogue Theater marquee.

Here are 20 photos from the morning’s events.
