Lonsdale Homecoming

Lonsdale (WVLT) -- The past two days have been a homecoming for Knoxville's Lonsdale neighborhood.

The Lonsdale's homecoming has been held for 22 straight years.

It kicked off yesterday with a parade down Texas Avenue and will wrap up tomorrow afternoon.

Residents say it gives them a chance to come together as a community.

"It means togetherness to the community, coming together with families and friends and just reminiscing on old times and look and embracing toward a wonderful future," said Dennis Murphy, Chairman of the Lonsdale Homecoming Committee.

Believe it or not, Lonsdale was developed in 1890 when it was considered West Knoxville.
