Members of the Virgilina Volunteer Fire Department are planning a fun-filled day as the 31st annual Summerfest celebration gets underway on this Saturday, May 25 beginning with the traditional 11 a.m. parade.

The parade will feature lots of attractions including floats, antique vehicles, bikers, horseback riders and of course, fire and rescue vehicles.

Arts and craft vendors will line the street, and there’ll be games and rides for the youngsters.

Local musicians will entertain beginning at noon and continuing through 5 o’clock in the afternoon.

Centra Health will be on hand with Life Flight helicopters.

Virgilina’s famous Brunswick Stew is featured for lunch, with hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries and loads of dessert also available. There’ll be barbeque and chicken plates available after 2 p.m. At 9 p.m., the winner of the $1,000 raffle giveaway will be announced.

A street dance featuring the Konnection Band, sponsored by Jack and Hallie Slagle and Southside Mechanical, Inc of Virgilina, will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 9.

The Virginia fire department invites members of the public to come out with the entire family, see friends and neighbors and enjoy the company of visitors who return annually to their hometown festival, all the while helping to support the local fire department.
