Lewisburg Residents Bring in 2014 with A Lot of Creativity

LEWISBURG (WVVA)- Downtown Lewisburg was filled with a variety of characters for the first day of the new year.

Families lined Jefferson St. for the annual Shanghai New Year's Parade. The parade has been going on since the 1800's.

All participants in the parade are free to decorate their float however they'd like and wear any type of costume they'd prefer.

While residents aren't sure how exactly the parade began or how it got its name they do know they are glad it's still an on going tradition.
