Mountaineer Days 4th of July Festival

Mountaineer Days began in Thomas, W.Va. near Blackwater Falls State Park in the early 1970s. Bernie and Mary Stilley, who operated a restaurant business in Thomas, were the organizers of the event. The events were held downtown and included a pet parade, Miss Mountaineer pageant, a bicycle parade and a variety of music and dancing. The firemen’s water battle was a featured event along with the annual fireworks display.
