Dozens of summer events are scheduled in the Ohio Valley

Dozens of events are scheduled across the Ohio Valley this summer, and almost every one of them is free.

Dozens of events are scheduled across the Ohio Valley this summer, and almost every one of them is free.

On Monday, a kick-off event was held in Wheeling to highlight what's happening and where. The sounds of summer were in full-swing, accompanied by some other summer-time favorites like hot dogs and popsicles.

"I still run into people that say there's nothing to do in Wheeling, and you can get motivated and look to see what's out there,” said Frank O’Brien, director, Wheeling Convention and Visitors Bureau. “There's something every single day throughout the Ohio Valley.”

This summer you won't have to look far because a summer guide has been produced. The guide shows concerts and events from Marshall County to Jefferson County.

Organizers say there's something to do almost every day. It all started a couple of weeks ago with the Ohio Valley Pride Festival. The events run until Labor Day.

"All up and down the Ohio River from 13 cities, we printed 50,000, and we are passing them out, and so if folks want to do something on a Wednesday, Thursday, the weekend, the free events are in here,” said Robert Heldreth from Panhandle Cleaning and Restoration. “It's just a complete guide to summer."

Three years ago, Wheeling resident R. Scat Scatterday came up with the idea, but unfortunately, he couldn't attend today because he is in the hospital.
