PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - The Parkersburg homecoming will return to town on Friday for the 37th year.

The homecoming first came to town in 1984 and it has changed since then.

VP of the homecoming, Chuck Lipps, says they have worked to add variety to the homecoming so everyone can come to enjoy it.

“That’s what this festival is all about is trying to give everyone something that they like and that’s why I say just come on down. There are going to be a lot of things to do for the kids, the adults and the teens. We just try to keep it running all day long,” Lipps said.

Live music at the homecoming will span from bluegrass to country to gospel music.

Lipps also adds that there will be entertainment and food for all people in West Virginia. Also, the event is free to attend for all who plan to go.
