A local festival was attended by two high profile individuals this afternoon.
West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant and singer Colton Pack attended the Meadow River Sporting Festival in Rainelle. the three-day festival kicked off yesterday morning with a golf tournament at Greenbrier Hills Golf Course. Tennant says that the festival is a great way to celebrate life as West Virginians.
"This is a great event. The sporting festival that's taking place here in Rainelle as part of their 100th birthday that was celebrated here. When you have big milestones, you have to keep up with it. But what i think is so great about this festival and this town too is that we are celebrating our heritages as West Virginians" said Natalie Tennant.
"It means bringing people in our own town. Seeing our town, seeing the people. Just being enriched in our town" said Mayor Pendleton.
The festival concludes tomorrow with a 5k race.
