The 39th annual Virginia Lake Festival starts Thursday with hot air balloon rides at the Lake Country Business Park on Noblin Farm Road and continues through Saturday night with fireworks and the Gathering of the Boats on Buggs Island Lake. Over the three-day span, tens of thousands of people are expected to swarm Clarksville and the lake to enjoy one of the biggest festivals in southern Virginia. Friday’s fun includes welcoming ceremonies and music by Logan Robinson and the Pizzazz Band, and Saturday will bring the Lakefest street fair, antique auto show, YMCA 5K/Fun Run, Juried Arts & Crafts Fair, vendor sales and a concert by The Konnection Band. The weather outlook is mostly promising albeit with some chance of weekend thunderstorms.

No dampening of patriotic spirits

South Boston News
A little rain did not dampen the patriotic spirit of those who came out to celebrate a shortened Fourth of July parade in Clarksville Monday. Families dressed in red, white, and blue waved their miniature flags for the color guard from VFW Post 8163 and local veterans who led off the procession. The rain nearly stopped just long enough for the parade to make it through town and for those who stopped by the annual Clarksville Ruritan Club hot dog roast. The threat of rain forced South Hill to cancel its fireworks scheduled for Monday night. The rain date is tentatively set for Sept. 2, Labor Day weekend.
