Tulsa honored veterans Friday in downtown with one of the country's largest Veterans Day parades. 

This year's parade started off with a bang, literally, thanks to the firing of a Revolutionary War cannon.

There was also a flyover of World War II warbirds and area churches also rang their bells and chimes at the same time. 

This year's theme was "Let Freedom Ring."

Vietnam Veteran Jack Bauling brought his grandsons along to see the parade and says it is more than fun, it's a lesson. 

"It teaches them that freedom isn't free and to actually pay homage to those who got them their freedoms," said Jack Bauling.   

This year's parade featured a number of veteran groups, school ROTC groups and high school marching bands.
