Oldtime fun in Wellsburg

Just about everyone enjoys a good community fair or festival, with local bands, food, rides and other attractions bringing crowds to the city streets for a day or two of civic pride and fun.

This Saturday, the city of Wellsburg will be introducing a new community event, and we hope our area residents take some time to check it out.

The Wellsburg Oldtime Festival will feature a variety of activities throughout the day Saturday, with events focused on the Wellsburg Town Square, Charles Street and the Wellsburg Wharf. It is designed to be reminiscent of an old-fashioned street festival, and we thank the organizers for stepping up to bring our area residents a new opportunity to come together and celebrate the unique qualities of one of our communities.

With everything from pontoon rides on the river, a volleyball tournament at the Crooked Dock, flea market, car cruise and contests, it is sure to be a great time.

Hopefully, the Oldtime Festival becomes a regular attraction for the community, adding another great event for our valley.
