The Car Show ran by Edens Auto Ranch was very well attended. Great Job!! We also had the exhibit from The Ohio Historical Society commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War in the Bellaire High School cafeteria. A big thank you to Bellaire Schools for allowing us to have it there and to Mike Schuler and Cindy Maupin for being there all 3 days to watch over the exhibit and to answer questions. There were several groups that came to see it along with people not only from Bellaire, but from Martins Ferry, St. Clairsville, Shadyside, Bethlehem, Wheeling, Proctor, and Moundsville. Thank you to EMT Services for sponsoring this exhibit.

Thank you again to all who made this years festival what it was and for all of the hard work of all of the committee members.
