Volcano Days Engine Show & Festival at Mountwood Park

Rt 1, Box 193 Washington, West Virginia 26181

Wood County’s Mount wood Park is situated among West
Virginia’s beautiful hills 12 miles east of Parkersburg on U.
S. Rt. 50, in the midst of one of the nation’s first oil booms,
and offers a variety of recreational opportunities for the whole
family. Near the entrance to the park is a 50-acre lake that
catches the eye of visitors. A trail winds its way around lake
banks where nature’s beauty abounds. Hundreds of acres of
beautiful woods are called ‘home’ by a variety of plants
and animals. The park contains 2000 acres, with more than 400
picnic tables and many recreational activities. I could go on and
on about the beauty of the park, about the white tailed deer, the
wild turkeys, and how in autumn the hills take on a beauty of
colors that defies description…

Last September there were over 10,000 visitors to the park
during a two-day event which over the past four years has exposed
the thousands to the beauty of a small part of West Virginia. This
event which has drawn people from all over the United States is
known as the Volcano Days Engine Show and Festival, is held on the
fourth weekend in September. Here in the boundaries of the park was
located the town of Volcano, the site of the second oil boom in
West Virginia, with Burning Springs being the first. I’ve said
much about the beauty of our park and now I invite you to come and
visit with us, not only to see a great engine show and festival but
to offer you the opportunity to meet real down-to-earth and caring
friends who will be delighted to be your friends.

Volcano Days Engine Show and Festival will be held September 25
and 26, 1993. For information write Mount wood Park, P. O. Box 56,
Waverly, WV 26184, or phone (304) 679-3611.
