West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle residents enjoy having a variety of types of local events to choose from when they feel like exploring the region year-round. There are regularly outdoor activities, musical performances, and everything imaginable in-between. The tail end of June is a particularly busy time in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle and provides many opportunities for enjoying local culture. Here are a sampling of events coming up over the next week-and-a-half:
Saturday and Sunday, June 23th-24th: Under Fire: The Battle of Bolivar Heights 1862
Come see demonstrations of field artillery used in the Battle of Bolivar Heights in 1862. Each day there will be firing demonstrations at 1, 2, and 3 pm.
