(Lewisburg) WVVA - As is tradition the city of Lewisburg celebrated New Year's Day with its Shanghai Parade. 

The quirky gathering starts with a New Year’s baby, a fireman clad in a diaper.  The anything-goes parade accepts all entrants. The city of Lewisburg claims its parade is over 150 years old.

Super Duper Pooper Scooper is a special honor at the Shanghai Parade. The job entails walking behind the horses to pick up any mess. This year’s honoree was Steve King
