WEIRTON, W.Va. (WTRF)

This 4th of July the city of Weirton is Celebrating a double feature.

It is also the city’s 75th Anniversary.

The festivities start off with a parade Saturday and will carry into a ceremony with guest speaker Senator Ryan Weld.

There will also be a lot to do with the whole family, from riding zip lining, waterslides, carnival games, face painting, and a petting zoo.

You can even enjoy some food and craft vendors.

There is also a bike decorating, patriotic pet and doughnut eating contests with cash prizes.

“To have the vision, the history that we’re building on and the future that we’re looking towards then knowing that our city’s been here for 75 years, we know that it’s going to be around for another 75 or beyond so it’s very exciting.”

Flora Perrone- 5th Ward Council Member

“Seeing everybody get together, having a great time, I love watching the kids run around, playing on things I like to see everybody get together and work together and just have fun. I love to see our little Downtown just come alive.”

Sarah Farran – Event Coordinator

The fun-filled day will wrap up with fireworks at 10 PM.
Weirton City Council is throwing the event and hopes everyone makes it out.

Here is the list of events for the day!
