Coal Town Christmas comes to Beckley

Posted: Updated:

An annual Christmas event for the whole family is happening in Beckley this weekend and the next.

Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and the Youth Museum presents Coal Town Christmas.

It features underground tours, a horse and wagon ride, caroling, and a marshmallow roast. Tour Guide Beatrice Hairston told 59News it's really about so much more.

"We're showing people that this is what coal is going to be, it's here to stay. We will find new resources. But what we are really trying to show people is how to enjoy family, how to enjoy life," said Tour Guide Beatrice Hairston.

It's all happening today, tomorrow and December 6 and 7th from 5 until 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 for children and $10 for adults.
