RAINELLE -

 

Get ready to say goodbye to summer.

The town of Rainelle is preparing to celebrate Fall with a day of crafts, yard sales, special attractions and musical performers during the annual Rainelle Fall Festival.

This year, the band Rick K and The Allnighters will return as the festival's feature attraction. The band will perform on the day of the festival, Saturday, August 31, at 7:30 pm at Heritage Park beside town hall.

In addition to that performance, the North Carolina band Eyes of Emiline will take the Heritage Park stage from 1-3pm as a return appearance from the centennial celebration in April.

Members of the Greenbrier Humane Society will be on hand for all festival goers who wish to adopt a pet, or just think about the addition of a new family member. Also, representatives of West Virginia Waggin' Tails will be present, as well as parade favorites Llamas in Pajamas.

There will be crafts and yard sales until 5pm and free various stage performances starting at 10am.

Craft vendors, food vendors, community service programs and more are invited to attend the festival.
