Summer Fun

July 16, 2012 - Robert "Bubba" Kapral
The summer entertainment season reaches full stride during the second half of July. Jamboree In The Hills is the pinnacle of fun and frivolity for thousands of Ohio Valley residents. The actual show begins this Thursday but campers started moving in several days prior. As soon as the curtain drops on the Superbowl of Country Music Sunday night, Jamboree-goers will begin making plans for next year's extravaganza. JITH leads right into King Football. The Rudy Mumley OVAC Charity Football Classic is the unofficial start of prep football in the Ohio Valley. It is more than just a football game, however, as the Queen of Queens pageant and the McDonald's OVAC All-Star Band also share the gridiron limelight. It is a weeklong extravaganza, wetting our appetite for as much football as we can digest. The Mumley Football Classic coincides with the Italian Festival, which brings nearly 100,000 patrons to the streets of Wheeling and Heritage Port for food, fun, entertainment, camaraderie and more food. It has few -- if any -- peers when it comes to local fests. In a span of less than two weeks, Ohio Valley residents are treated to a smorgasbord of entertainment, offering something appealing for everyone.
