Washington Street will be closed from Lee Street to Church Street from 12:50 p.m. until the completion of the parade.

Parade participants should arrive at the old Lewisburg Elementary School at 11:45 a.m. for registration and line up. This year’s prize categories will be: Best Band, Most Excellent Equestrian, Fiercest Fire Engine, Lightfoot Award (for best on-foot entry), Most Fabulous Float, Vintage Vehicle Award, and The People’s Choice Award.
