WV food festivals

When I was younger, I thought Wellsburg's "Applefest" was the center of the universe. Everyone in the area did. You could get foods you've never tried before, trinkets of all sorts, and face paintings. I loved it. But as I've grown older, I realized these are all around the site. Here are a few upcoming ones. Any more to add? List them below!
