Times West Virginian
The 34th annual West Virginia Three Rivers Festival started in fine form Thursday night with a grand feature parade through downtown Fairmont, ending at Palatine Park with opening ceremonies.
The parade launches the annual festival, which draws many to the city’s Palatine Park for fun-filled activities for the young and the young at heart.
Today, the carnival complete with rides and games opens at 4 p.m. But the fun extends past the midway with many more events, concerts and competitions.
Today, Josh Knotts and Lea will entertain the crowds with their Extreme Illusions and Escapes at the park’s ampitheater from 4-7 p.m.
