Best lights around: 9 College Avenue!

BUCKHANNON, WV: The home at 9 College Avenue is this week’s winner of the Winter Wonderland Wagon Rides “Best Decorated” award–congratulations and thank you! Over two hundred thirty people came out on Saturday to take a wagon ride around town, raising hundreds of dollars for the Zach Post Memorial Food Drive.

When the homeowner received the good news, she shared that they had been out-of-town for the weekend but decided to leave the lights on for the wagon rides. We are so glad you did!

You have two more Saturdays left to take a tour of our town’s holiday lights on the Winter Wonderland Wagon Rides. Join us this Saturday from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Jawbone Park and you can vote for Week 3’s winner! The rides last about 20 minutes and run continuously with two wagons in rotation. You do not need a reservation: just show up and hop on board.

If you are able, bring a donation of $3-5 (or a canned good) per rider. All proceeds will go to the Zach Post Memorial Food Drive benefiting the Upshur County Parish House and Buckhannon Salvation Army.

The route for Saturday, December 15:

From Jawbone Park, go west on Friendly Way, turn north on Kanawha, east on Main, E. Main to College, southwest on College, northwest on Sedgwick, southwest on Lightburn, southeast on Meade to Camden, north on Camden turning in the Wesleyan Chapel loop, south on Camden to Florida, north on Florida, and returning to Jawbone Park.

Who will be the winner for Week 3?
