Appalachian Glass Festival - April 22, 23, 24 th Weston, WV

Glass collectors, and people who want to learn more about West Virginia Glass will want to attend this festival.
My parents and I went to the First Appalachian Glass Festival several years ago - we took Shorty Finley and another retired Blenko Glass blower.
We stayed from 10 am until 8pm, the day was filled with games, glass demonstrations - I don't have a schedule for this year, but I'll post one very soon.
Mark your calendars.
If I'm not on call I plan to be there, interviewing older glass workers, eating funnel cake and playing Marble King marble games.
Everyone is WELCOME - There was no cover charge. Bring the children, food is available on site.
