BLUEFIELD – Hot dogs, flags, and patriotic music highlight the afternoon in Mercer County Friday.
The All American celebration at Chicory Square in downtown Bluefield welcomed hundreds of locals to a concert with those coveted dogs and popcorn.
Flags were waiving on a warm day, and everyone we spoke to had a smile on their face.
This Fourth of July celebration is part of the regular concert series every Friday in Bluefield throughout the summer.
“Out celebrating the Fourth!” says local Melissa Rose, “They're having a celebration to show what America means to us and we came to celebrate with everybody else.”
Gay Jones came from Falls Mills, Va. to celebrate the day, “We decided it was our patriotic duty to come up and celebrate. So we decided to do that on a nice Friday afternoon.”
This is the 26th year of the downtown Chicory Square concert series.
