WHITESVILLE – On Saturday, Oct. 8 Whitesville will be having their Second Annual Fall Festival held throughout the town from 10am – 3pm.
The festival is organized by Betty Ann Williams and Sandy Armstrong.
The festival is sponsored by West Virginia Focus Magazine and The HUB.
According to Williams, the inspiration behind this festival was spurred by the town’s win of the Turn this Town Around Contest in 2015.
Williams stated that Adam Pauley and Hollie Smarr entered Whitesville in the contest.
The contest brought in over 5000 votes for the town.
The festival will start out with a parade at noon. There will be first, second and third place trophies given for the best floats.
Each class at Whitesville Elementary will be doing a class scarecrow for attendees of the festival to vote on. There will be first, second and third place trophies given to the classrooms that win.
Williams said, “Parking will be all throughout the town of Whitesville. “
The festival will have things for the entire family to do. There will be inflatables, vendors, live music and much more.
The National Guard will also be there with their rock climbing wall.
Williams says, “Bring a lawn chair and come enjoy the day.”
