Local marching groups, Scouts, ball teams, church groups or other organizations wanting to participate in the 2013 West Virginia Coal Festival Grand Parade are reminded that they need to sign up as soon as possible.


The parade is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., Saturday, June 22.


Line-up will be from 1 to 1:30 p.m. that day at the Madison Funeral Home parking lot in West Madison.


Carolyn Kuhn is the parade coordinator. She can be contacted at 304-369-3975.


“The parade route will be going from the Benjamin Price Bridge, turning right onto State Street and through downtown Madison,” Kuhn stated. “They can then return to the funeral home parking lot and disperse if they want.”


The 20th Annual West Virginia Coal Festival will be held June 18 through June 22.
