It was a star bangle celebration packed with people of all ages that enjoyed a community celebration unseen since the restrictions of the COVID pandemic went in place! Whole families came out to enjoy the annual “Picnic In the Park” held at the city park grounds and sponsored by the Sistersville Community Service Organization. Some of the day long activities included a ceremonial flag raising, festive free food, free swimming, rock wall climbing and live entertainment under the shelter and on the pool stage. The highlight of the celebration had to be the Gigantic Zambelli fireworks salute show that lit up the night sky. Guests hoping for the best view and close to the River Walk area could see the mortar shells launched and feel the concussions of the explosions in their chest. Many more in pleasure boats gathered on the Ohio River to watch the colorful explosions create a reflective dance on the water below.
