FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - Dark clouds hovered above Fishers crowds at this year's Freedom Festival Parade.
The parade began around 4 p.m. Sunday at Fishers Town Hall and 116th Street with dry conditions.
Soon showers drifted in, making for a damp celebration.
But WISH-TV crews didn't mind a walk in the rain.
In fact, many came prepared with umbrellas and smiles.
The showers lasted about 30 minutes
Parade officials say everyone in the parade was in great spirits and the spectators stayed to watch.
