Summer is in full swing and it’s time to celebrate. With the Governor lifting all the COVID guidelines in late June, things seem to feel a little more normal here in West Virginia. This past weekend was the time for Independence Day celebrations, cook-outs, fireworks, water, and fun.
As the first holiday since the mandate was lifted, all around us towns were having fairs, concerts, town celebrations. Fireworks could be seen and heard all around on Sunday night. Families together, communities enjoying the company of one another. Live shows are making a comeback and brining music lovers together again.
Lainey Wilson played a show in Roane County on July 1, 2021 hosted by the Town of Spencer. A large crowd gathered at the Roane County High school for the free concert to enjoy some music and socializing, before kicking off the Independence Day Weekend Celebrations.
Many local towns offered free events for the kids this weekend, finishing up with fireworks. A sense of normalcy with events and live music, a thing that many have missed, brought everyone together to have fun and celebrate their freedom.
