Friday, July 1, 2011

Lewisburg's Fourth of July parade is the subject of a national TV network news story, according to the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce.

"ABC News, New York will be doing a story on the parade," Chamber Executive Director Ritaanne Weaver reported to Chamber members late Friday afternoon.

The July Fourth Parade started Monday morning at The Acres shopping center and went through the public square to Lewisburg's Recreation Center and ended at Preston Hopkins Field.

This is the third consecutive year for the parade that was discontinued for a number of years after being a long tradition here.

Another part of the Independence Day celebration in Lewisburg was the Arts A Poppin art show in the Recreation Center Banquet Room. It was presented by the Marshal County Art Guild.

"Lot's of talented individuals ... entered this show," Weaver said.

Meanwhile, a Baby Contest was followed by the Presentation of the Outstanding Citizens of the Year. The Little Miss and Mister Marshall County were designated Monday as was the Miss Marshall County Pageant winner.
