While the Capitol was celebrating West Virginia's 150th birthday, there was party after party in the lower counties of our state.

Throughout the lower counties, people could be found celebrating. Gilmer County hosted it's annual Folk Festival. The Wildlife Center in Upshur County had Civil War reenactments, and ladies dressed up for tea. There was even free birthday cake at the courthouse on Main Street in Buckhannon.

Laura Meadows, the Executive Director for the Upshur County Visitors Center, said, "This is such a huge day for our state because our people are proud. We're proud natives of West Virginia, and this is just a great celebration of where we come from, and what's coming ahead for our state." 

Some celebrations will even continue, like in Randolph County. Friday night, June 21st, they're having a free performance in their town square at 6-30 p.m.
