Despite the rain, hundreds of onlookers watched as Northville celebrated its Victorian roots Friday night by kicking off the Victorian Festival with a parade.
Several groups participated in the Northville Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event. Northville High School's marching band, several elementary schools and more walked down Main Street. Some in the parade tossed candy into the hands of delighted children while some others played music as they passed.
The Victorian Festival continues through Sunday with festivities in the downtown area. For more information and to see a schedule of events, see our previous story or the Chamber website.
