FAIRMONT — Food and merchandise vendors are invited to participate in the City of Mannington’s Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration coming up next month.

Rana Taylor, the program manager for Mannington Main Street, said that there is no fee for vendors to sign up for the event. Interested individuals should call 304-986-2037 or 304-368-8271 for details.

“There are big crowds that come down, so there is great opportunity for fundraising,” she said.

Taylor said that residents gather for the celebration at Hough Park to enjoy activities such as the parade, flag ceremony, kids’ games, a cake walk, live musical entertainment from Ryan Cain and the Ables Band, a sky lantern release ceremony and more.
