A tradition in Reading helped residents celebrate the unofficial end of summer.

The 26th annual Labor Day parade stepped off Monday morning from its starting point at 8th and Penn streets in center city.

The parade ended at FirstEnergy Stadium, but the celebration continued with food, live music and the announcement of the parade entry winners.

Mayor Vaughn Spencer served as emcee for the event.
