State of the City of St. Albans August 2022

I am back writing this article after missing last month due to a very hectic schedule, and quite frankly, it slipped my mind. It’s been such a busy and successful summer in St. Albans, West Virginia already.

Yakfest a Success - State of the City of St. Albans August 2022

Yakfest a Huge Success

What a great weekend we had June 17-18 in St.Albans! YakFest was fantastic, and we had our largest overall crowd yet to date. The Tour De Coal was a huge success once again, with approximately 2000 kayakers paddling down the Coal River from Tornado to St. Albans. A big thank-you to both the YakFest Committee and the Coal River Group for putting together

these two events which is an economic boom for St. Albans.
