With the harsh Winter gone, temperatures last Saturday was a perfect start to the little league baseball season, as hundreds marched in the 60th annual Williston Park Little League Parade, through the streets of Williston Park.

Leading the parade through the streets of Williston Park were members of the Williston Park American Legion.

Williston Park Mayor Paul Ehrbar, along with trustee Kevin Rynne and Nassau County Assemblyman Tom Mckevitt marched in the parade, pausing a moment to take a picture with the 2010 softball champions, the Williamsport Lady Patriots.

Saturday's parade was seen as an important tradition for Williston Park Little League President Michael Ciccone.

"This is a family community," Ciccone said. "This really gives a chance to rally all the teams."

The Lady Patriots helped to lead the parade behind the American Legion, riding along in an old fashioned Williston Park fire truck, as they cruised along with fellow parade attendees.

The parade concluded once everyone reached Kelleher field, as Mayor Ehrbar threw the ceremonial first pitch of the season.
