Thousands of residents lined the streets for the annual New Castle Memorial Day Parade for one of the largest turnouts in years. Locals say the nice weather and promise of politician sightings drew the crowd.

The Clintons and Gov. Cuomo all live in the nearby area and have attended the parade as onlookers in past years.
