There is social life after Jamboree In The Hills. Although the music in the hills went silent Sunday night after another successful four-day run, there is no dropoff in entertainment offerings. In fact, for thousands, the social menu is more flavorable this week than for Jambo fest. The ever-popular Upper Ohio Valley Italian Festival will come together Friday, running through Sunday. It, like the Superbowl of Country Music, will pack in hordes of fun-seekers, countless many who will travel many miles for tasty cuisine, lively entertainment and renewing friendships. The Italian Festival, while dramatically different in style and substance than JITH, has engrained itself into the social fabric of the Ohio Valley as deeply as the Jamboree. Italian Fest helps to set the table for the pinnacle of Ohio Valley prep sporting events. The Rudy Mumley All-Star Charity Football Classic will unfold Sunday night at Wheeling Island Stadium. The game pits Ohio vs. West Virginia prep stars. The contest, however, transcends the gridiron. The game generates thousands of dollars for charity and also features band members, cheerleaders and queens. It also serves as the unofficial start of the high school season, which will officially kick off on Thursday, Aug. 26. The calendar says that we are in the back half of the summer season. For sun-lovers and students that is a sobering thought. For football diehards, however, such is not the case.
