The Largest WV Event will be at the New River Gorge Bridge, October 20, 2017

By
Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375

Do you like skydiving, jumping from high places ... then mark your calendar for the West Virginia New River Gorge Bridge Event… October 20, 2017 

 

largest wv event at the new river gorge bridge Oct 20, 2017

 

Every third Saturday in October the New River Gorge Bridge closes to traffic and opens for the largest one-day festival in West Virginia. Spectacular views, BASE Jumpers, and vendors offering food and crafts.  Bridge Events starts October 20 through 21, 2017. 

 

The bridge is a structure of amazing statistics. 3030 feet long. 876 feet high. 70 feet wide. 88 million pounds of U.S. Cor Ten steel and American cement. Opened and dedicated on October 22, 1977, the span has since become the symbol of West Virginia.

The New River Gorge in West Virginia averages between 700 and 1300 feet deep. The gorge was formed solely due to erosion; there were no glaciers in the area like those that carved our similar gorges in other parts of the world. This part of the gorge is characterized by steep walls, huge boulders, and an exposed cliff band along the gorge’s rim. One very unique feature of the river is its course. The new river flows north (which is not in itself unusual) and bisects the entire Appalachian mountain range, literally separating north from south.

The New River Gorge is a lot of things..... Wilderness, Park, Vacation, Home. It has a special meaning for everyone who visits. This day celebrates all of them. No wonder West Virginia is known as "Wild and Wonderful".

Rebecca, what a beautiful bridge. It looks like Bridge Day has something for everyone, I'd love to watch people jump but, not sure I'd ever have the courage to do it myself!
