A musical 150th

Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys brought a taste of their bluegrass stylings to the Weirton Event Center Friday as part of this year’s Summer Sizzle concert series. The series will continue June 28 with performances by Bone Daddy and Easy Street.

In addition to the concert, Friday’s event also continued the local celebration of West Virginia’s sesquicentennial, with a balloon launch, cake, fireworks and a chance for prizes, including an iPad courtesy of the Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau.
