BLUEFIELD – Summer is in full swing and what better way to celebrate warm months than a festival in the streets?
The Downtown Merchants Street Fair is gearing up for this weekend in Bluefield.
Friday and Saturday’s events include dancers; a pet, motorcycle, and car show; the Little Miss pageant; and the signature event for the Bluefield fair, the Downhill Derby on Raleigh Street.
The fair is centered at Chicory Square in downtown Bluefield and there will be plenty of activities for locals of all ages.
“It's important to the merchants to display our downtown and it's important to our merchants as a gesture of appreciation for our citizens and to show them a good time,” says organizer Art Riley.
