Found in the home movie vault, this clip of a parade on Gratiot in East Detroit in 1956, just posted to Youtube:

This was shot at the corner of Gratiot and Semrau; you can see Immanuel Methodist Church and Kay's Kitchen, which is still open today under the name Andary's. Does anyone have any info about when and for what events these parades took place?
