Rain could not stop the festivities at the Mountain Heritage Day in Fort Gay , Wv on Saturday September 2, though the turnout was not as it has been in past festivities because of bad weather. But several people braved the rain and cooler temperatures to enjoy a day full of community gathering and fun.

The Rain did not dampen the community spirit to come out and listen to music, have some good food and visit with family and friends.

For the coverage, Lazer. If this had taken place in Kenova, maybe the Wayne County News would have been there...
