Campfire Storytelling Set 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. on Thursday, Oct. 21, 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. Visitors are asked to cooperate with all COVID health recommendations: Each family group or individual should stay at least six feet apart from others, and masks covering the nose and mouth are suggested when not snacking.
In the event of very bad weather, this event will be rescheduled for Oct. 28. Call the library or Grand Vue Park between 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 21 to find out if that will be happening. If the weather is good, there should be no need to call.
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.
