From pedal bikes to firetrucks and bands, the Sewickley Valley celebrated July Fourth with parades, music and fireworks.

Dozens of firetrucks, including some from as far as Cranberry Township, Butler County, capped off a nearly 50-minute parade through Leetsdale Thursday afternoon, which also featured the Quaker Valley and Northgate marching bands.

Police units from around the region, local organizations and state and local elected officials marched in the community's traditional Fourth of July parade.

Earlier in the day, Edgeworth residents traveled through the borough with a bike parade.

Festivities continued throughout the afternoon and evening at Leetsdale's Henle Park with music and other entertainment.

A fireworks show is expected to light the sky at dusk.
