It was an emotional day in Oso, exactly one year after the mudslide on Highway 530 near the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River.
Families and first responders came together to commemorate their loss and celebrate their community.
Bagpipes sounded out as pipe and drum corps from Snohomish and King counties led the way for first responders and elected officials.
All were paying tribute to the 43 people who died in the Oso mudslide. Those honoring them gathered in the middle of the highway, which was closed for three hours to commemorate the loss and recovery.
