A busy Memorial Day weekend is in store for the city of Wheeling.

On Friday evening Linsly's prom is scheduled, John Marshall High School's graduation takes place and many activities surrounding Wheeling's half-marathon are taking place.

On Sunday, Wheeling's Heritage Bike Tour will begin in the morning and run through the afternoon.
