Events at the Park

 

The West Virginia Hitchers
September 2, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
The original "Hitchers" was very guitar-centric with pedal steel and percussion layered on top. The new "WV Hitchers" is a more authentic Folk-Americana sound, relying on the powerful songwriting and smooth vocals of Maria that melds with the strength of the lead guitar position, now occupied by Chuck on his pedal steel. Dan and Creed fill out the mix with Dan's subtle and steady percussion as well as Creed's tastefully rich bass lines. Tickets $5, kids 6 and under get in free. The food vendor will be Red Beard BBQ. thehitcherswv.wixsite.com/wvhitchers

The Plate Scrapers
August 12, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p

Egg-cellent Easter Extravaganza
April 1, 2017
1:00p - 3:00p
Most people know the rhyme by Beatrix Potter: “Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hoppin' down the bunny trail, Hippity, hoppity, hippity, hoppity, Easter's on its way ” Well, this year, we have decided that everyone one should have a chance to “hop down a bunny trail.” Join us for games and activities scattered around the park in a path that the bunny just might have taken once upon a time. Due to mixed reviews from our event last year, there will be no formal egg hunt, but it is not entirely out of the question that the bunny could have dropped some here or there. This event is not a race, but meant to be more of a walk with occasional challenges where participants could sometimes earn candy or a small toy. Feel free to bring a basket and a camera as we have it on good authority that the Bunny might make an appearance. Stop by any time during the event to participate. Being “on-time” is not required. The event is free, but donations are always appreciated. We hope to see you in April! www.facebook.com/events/267312993698361/
