Leesburg -- A fun event for kids and kids at heart Saturday in Leesburg.  

The Hason Shriners celebrated its new membership initiation with a parade. It included new members pulling this bus through the parade and raising money at local businesses for the Shriner's Hospitals.

The organization helps provide healthcare to children who are burn-victims.

"Carry on a lot of foolishness and all, we act like kids sometimes, but you never can stand too tall to stoop down and help a cripple child. That's what it's all about," said shriner Robert Kendrick.

Several dozens of people enjoyed Saturday's parade. More than 15 new members were initiated at the annual spring ceremonial event.
