CHARLESTON, W.Va (WSAZ) -- Scott and Laura Miller own 3 popular businesses along Capitol Street in Charleston so there's no denying that they are invested in the community.

Now, they're taking their involvement a step further. When they heard that the annual Capitol Street Funeral Parade was canceled along with Regatta, they stepped into action.

The Millers have decided to sponsor the event so that the parade can march on. Charlie Miller is organizing the parade. It will be held Saturday, September 5th at 5:30.

A pre-parade party filled with a Mardi Gras theme will be held at their popular downtown restaurant\bar "Sam's". Then the parade will get underway.

The Millers are inviting everyone to get dressed up in costume and take part in this tried and true Charleston tradition which is a huge draw every Labor Day weekend. They're also hoping to raise money for charity during the event.
