Rebecca, this river festival sounds like the place to be! I do think they should hold the Irish Road Bowling first before the Strawberry Shortcake event, because you can't drink beer after eating strawberries! ;-)

If you live in the entire Greenbriar, WV area and you make the statement "I'm bored", it's just too damn bad.  There is so much to do.
