September 20, 2010: Last night the Gambill Amusements trucks started rolling in, bring the carnival to town. They will be setting up and getting everything ready for the Fall Event of Shinnston – Frontier Days! Where?
Adult rides are set up right in front of the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast in the Volunteer Fire Department parking lot and the Kiddie rides are set up across from the B & B side yard in the parking lot of the Orioles Club.
Everything begins Wednesday evening about 5 P.M. with the Gospel Sing sponsored by the Shinnston Area Council of Churches that is followed by an event sponsored by many organizations and business in Shinnston – a FREE concert by Grammy-nominated DecembeRadio! One of their warm-up bands is called The Museum.
The Bice – Ferguson Museum will be open Thursday thru Saturday during Frontier Days from 2 until 8 P.M. They have an Art Show of Shinnston Artists in September. Vote for your favorite painting.
Saturday, September 25 there will be the Frontier Days Parade starting at 11 A.M.
At 2 P.M. a Special Olympics Bocce Tournament at Ferguson Park starts. All sponsor money and entrance fees go to Special Olympics. (Gillum House Bed & Breakfast is a sponsor!)
So come to Shinnston for fun, food, entertainment, and good works too.
