RAINELLE -

 

The town of Rainelle In Greenbrier County is having their 150th birthday celebration in just under two weeks.

The full schedule of events for the weekend is all set and includes things like a parade, live music, and various competitions.

One of those is a muzzle-loading, archery, and horse-shoe competition happening on Saturday, April 27th.
