Greenbrier Co. parade honors local veterans

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va (WVVA)-- The Dandelion Festival in White Sulphur Springs continued Monday with its annual Memorial Day Parade.

More than 45 floats traveled down Main Street.

The crowd cheered for local veterans as they rode past.

"This is what a small town is all about," said Pat Harper, a member of the Dandelion Committee.

She said the veterans in the parade are locals, and that's another reason honoring them in this way is special.

"They're not strangers... they're our neighbors, our family," she said. "They're people in our community, and we want to honor and celebrate them."

The parade also featured local pageant queens, law enforcement, and the White Sulphur Springs Volunteer Fire Department.
