The Regatta is coming back. Looks like they've made good use of existing events and kept it freed as well.

Regatta revival is set for July 25-27 | The Herald-Dispatch

A few Rails and Ales tickets still available through a raffle supporting Create Huntington.

Quote:
Better Beer Coalition member Jess Pressman, who is one of the organizers of Rails and Ales, said they are not only donating part of the proceeds to the Create Hun*tington matching minigrant pro*gram, but also donating five pairs of tickets to Create Huntington’s Board of Connectors who will be deciding how to get the tickets to the public. Most likely in the form of a charity raffle or auction that will help replenish the minigrant fund to help fuel neighborhood and grassroots community projects in Huntington.

It looks like the tickets most likely will be doled out through a raffle (get tickets at Tap House, Bottle and Wedge and SIP Wine Bar at Heritage Station) and one pair will most likely be auctioned off on Facebook.

Thursday evening there was a concert at Pullman Square. I didn't get to see who was playing, but there certainly were a lot of people downtown that evening. I grabbed some food at McGillicuddy's and people were coming in there talking about how good the music was at Pullman.

Well...I talked to the mayor about continuing Appalachian Uprising in Huntington so it's good news that they are going to do it. Wish they hadn't changed the name. The name was the best part about it.

Keeping the name the same would have helped to bridge the gap caused by the location change. Hopefully it continues to be successful.

In other news, Huntington hosting the first Craft Beer Week celebration in the state!

Agreed. I can't think of a logical reason to change the name unless the original host family would not allow it.
