Kids rode bikes, scooters and skateboards from Five Points Corners to the Great Lawn of Pequot Library.
Revelers said it felt good to be together after the parade last year was canceled.
"People feel a certain sense of warmth, obviously around the Fourth of July. It's America's birthday and it brings people together. Everybody's very, very happy to be together this year and see everybody's entire face," said Great Lawn of Pequot Library's Jane Manners.
Chris Brand, drummer of the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, was the parade's leader this year.
