Campfire Storytelling Planned at Grand Vue Park
MOUNDSVILLE — The one and only Campfire Storytelling event for the year takes place at Grand Vue Park in Moundsville at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22 at Shelter 1 (the Zipline Base Camp), beside the Aerial Adventure Park.
The featured storyteller is popular local performer Rich Knoblich, well-known for humorous Appalachian-styled yarns and traditional folktales. Thursday’s audience should expect some hauntingly good fare for the Halloween season.
Knoblich is sponsored by the Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library. All the material will be family friendly, so everyone is welcome to share in the tall tales and spooky legends told beside a crackling fire in the Shelter’s hearth.
Anyone planning to attend is welcome to bring snacks and beverages. Picnic tables are available but lawn chairs and blankets can also be brought if they are preferred. COVID restrictions will apply and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation. Each family group or individual is expected to stay at least 6 feet from others and masks covering the nose and mouth are required (but may briefly be removed for snacking).
In the event of very bad weather, or a worsening of the COVID situation, the event will be canceled. To be safe, if West Virginia’s County Alert Map shows Marshall County to be gold, orange or red, the event will be cancelled.
Grand Vue Park and the Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library are pleased to partner to make possible Campfire Storytelling events. They are free and open to the public. For additional information please contact Grand Vue Park at 304-845-9810 or the Moundsville library at 304-845-6911.
