Wild, Wonderful Weekend Preview: September 1-2

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV)- This weekend marks the beginning of a new month, happy September!

We are kicking off September with the Italian Heritage Festival! Festivities began throughout the week, but Saturday is the big parade. All of the day's events start at 10:00 AM and will last throughout the day. Come on out to Downtown Clarksburg for all of the fun, and of course be sure to say hello to the WDTV staff!

The saying goes "sun's out, guns out!" Well, some of the strongest guys and gals will be at Palatine Park this Saturday, competing for the title of the 2018 "America's Strongest Viking." There will be various weight lifting competitions throughout the day, and many records are expected to be broken. The event is expected to last from noon until 7:00 PM.

On Sunday, the Italian Heritage Festival wraps up with the outdoor mass. Everyone is invited to gather at the main stage in front of the Harrison County Court House. If you cannot make it there, we will air that service live for you.

Sunday is also the final day for The Jackson's Mill Jubilee. You and the family do not want to miss out on all of the contests, antiques, car shows and much, much more! Admission is $5 a person, but kiddos under the age of three are free.
