( KTRS ) Thousands turned out in St. Louis for the return of the annual Thanksgiving Day parade.
The parade was cancelled last year amid protests and widespread arrests over Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson and other fatal police shootings. The 2014 parade was scheduled several days after a St. Louis County grand jury decided to not indict former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in Brown’s death.
On Wednesday night, the city hosted an annual `Guns `N Hoses’ competition pitting police officers against firefighters to raise money for fallen first responders. Last year’s event was delayed due to the Ferguson unrest.
