City’s Winter Wonderland wagon rides begin Dec. 1

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — On the first four Saturdays in December (1, 8, 15 & 22), hop a ride on the City’s Winter Wonderland Wagons, which will be providing tours of the city starting at Jawbone Park and traveling around town on two routes.

Rides board from 5 to 9 p.m. at the park.

Your home or business may be on the circuit and we hope you’ll show your holiday spirit by creating a display of lights, trees, nativity scenes, festive flags, whatever it may be, for a little friendly competition to achieve the “Best Decorated” home award! We will announce a new winner each week.
