Matthews Alive draws thousands

MATTHEWS, NC (WBTV) -

Crowds lined the streets for the Matthews Alive Labor Day parade Saturday morning.  

The Labor Day tradition brings thousands of people to the small Mecklenburg County town over a four day period.

Organizers say after the expenses are paid, the rest of the money goes back to the community.

In 22 years, the festival has given over a million dollars back to the non profits that make the event possible.
