Fireworks display scheduled at Barbour Fairgrounds July 4
The Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, Barbour County Commission and Barbour County Fair Association are sponsoring a free fireworks display beginning at 10 p.m. July 4 at the Barbour County fairgrounds located on U.S. 250 between Belington and Philippi.
Gates will open at 7 p.m. An optional free-will offering will be available at the gates to help off-set expenses. Early contributions are also welcome.
The public is invited to bring a picnic supper and enjoy an evening in the park prior to the display. Parking will take place on the upper grounds, where the fair’s carnival rides are always located. The fireworks will be detonated from the park’s baseball fields with parking in the lower-level racetrack area reserved for overflow cars.
