Randolph County is decorated with scarecrows, the windows are dressed, and rides and concessions are moving into downtown Elkins for the 82nd Annual Mountain State Forest Festival.
Festival events kick off on Saturday with opening ceremonies, a downtown car show, festival food and much more. Officials said that the festival is a great way for the community and families to come together and celebrate the mountain state.
“The town really gears up. It’s good for our community, and it’s good for the state. It brings a lot of people in, and it brings families together that they really would not see otherwise, unless it wasn’t the Mountain State Forest Festival,” said MSFF Director General Rich Nida.
Community members and officials are hoping for sunny weather and fall foliage for all the festival activities throughout the week. For a full schedule of events, click here.
