WVSF parade route has been extended!

Hearing the parade route is different? Don’t worry! We didn’t eliminate your favorite spot, we just added some more! Parades used to conclude near the Gibson Library and certain groups were sent down Sedgwick Street. That didn’t work for years, and we kept doing it.  It still didn’t work, so we changed it. We extended the parade past its traditional conclusion point to the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue.  Families can reunite more easily and safely, our first responders have more room to work on and transport patients, and it will ideally eliminate the backup onto Main Street from groups stopping at and before the library to unsafely unload.  Check out this map by City of Buckhannon to see areas of closure.

We’ve Gone Social

We’re on Facebook, making it super easy to follow all of the happenings.

Did you know:

Strawberries are the only fruit to wear their seeds on the outside? The average berry is adorned with 200 some seeds.

Native Americans ate strawberries long before European settlers arrived. As spring’s first fruit, they were eaten freshly picked or even baked into cornbread.

Americans eat an average of three and a half pounds of fresh strawberries a year. It is closer to 5 pounds if you count frozen berries.
