July 4, 2010: I got to thinking that people may not know how to get to the Bice-Ferguson Memorial Park (Shinnston City Park) for the Concert and Fireworks tonight. So here are the directions.
From I-79, take Exit # 125, turn WEST toward the Exxon station and turn LEFT at the Exxon onto WV Rt 131 (Saltwell Road). Drive to the traffic light and turn right onto US Rt 19 north. Go to *
From US Rt 19 (Fairmont and the north) – go south on US Rt 19, cross the West Fork River Bridge then STOP at the STOP sign before going straight at the Veteran’s Memorial. *
From US Rt 19 (Clarksburg and the south) – Go north on US Rt 19 then Go to *
* At the Veteran’s Memorial turn right (do NOT cross the bridge over the West Fork River) and then left at the top of the hill. Turn left at NORTH ST and this will lead you into the Park or to wherever parking is available.
The opening act is Kelsey Jeffries at 7:20 p.m., followed by the Demotivators at 7:30, and Chelsea Boyles at 8:00. The Shinnston Community Band will perform at 9 p.m. with fireworks starting with the final bars of Stars and Stripes Forever!
The Pool Concession Stand will be open and the Swim Team will be having their annual Bake Sale.
