Red Hook community marches in remembrance of Sandy

Posted: Updated:
RED HOOK -

The Red Hook community held a parade Monday in remembrance of the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy six years ago.

People lined up at the corner of Pioneer and Van Brunt streets for the march. It ended at the Red Hook waterfront, which saw water swell up several feet when Sandy hit in 2012.

The parade is meant as a show of resilience, but it's also turned into a fun community tradition. With floats and live music, the idea is to celebrate what the community is about: unity and strength.

Since the parade came so close to Halloween, some families and kids dressed up in costume.
