Festivals take center stage this month in #CWV. Our August Top 10 list is full of them: RiverfestMultifestSummerfestSportsFEST. There’s even Jesus Fest! Each festival has its own flavor and fun, and all guarantee an enjoyable time.

August also is a month of transition. Summer activities, like Live on the Levee and West Virginia Power baseball, wind down – but not without fun and fireworks! The final five Live on the Levee concerts take place Aug 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31, with a fireworks display following the concert on the 31st.    

The boys of summer also wrap up things in August. The West Virginia Power play 15 home games this month, two of which will feature post-game fireworks (Aug 3 and 17). The Power finishes its home season in #CWV Thursday, Aug 30 against Hagerstown.

Back-to-school shopping revs into high gear as parents and students prepare for a year of academic endeavors. Shoppers will find fashions to fit every style and budget in the Capital City, from Charleston Town Center Mall, Southridge, and the Shops at Kanawha to the Bridge Road Shops and downtown’s unique boutiques.
