OCEAN GROVE - Hundreds turned out for the annual Independence Day parade Saturday in Ocean Grove.

This year's parade grand marshal was Harry Eichhorn, who had been at the helm of the Ocean Grove Summer Band for 63 years.

The band is famous for its Wednesday night concerts at the beachfront pavilion.

The Ocean Grove Summer Band wrapped the day with a special patriotic-themed concert inside the Great Auditorium. It marked Eichhorn's final performance as director.
