LEWISTON, Maine (WMTW) - The pandemic put the kibosh on most of Maine’s Bicentennial celebrations last year, but it’s never too late for an old-fashioned parade.

The parade made its way through the cities of Lewiston and Auburn on Saturday.

More than 100 floats, bands and participants from across the state celebrating Maine’s 200th birthday one year later.

Governor Mills served as grand marshal. Afterward there was a bicentennial street fest.
