- The numbers are in for the Perry 200 Grand Patriotic Parade crowd that lined the streets in downtown Erie last Saturday.

Officials from the Perry 200 Commission estimate 115,000 came out to watch the parade.

There were about 10,000 participants in the 1.8 mile parade.

And if each person, on average, spent $15 to$20, that pumped $2.5 million back into the local economy.
