Mountaineer Fest

Prior to last Friday's home game against Luray, Madison County High School hosted Mountaineer Fest. Held as a way to kick-off the new football season, the festival featured music, face painting, moon bounces, rides on the sheriff's office barrel train, food, drinks, snow cones, door prizes and more. The festival was hosted by the school and open to the community. Many attendees could be seen beating the heat with a bright blue snow cone as children played in the moonbounce and had their faces painted. For more coverage of the festival and the game, see the Sept. 11 Madison County Eagle.

Among the attendees at Saturday's event were 5th District U.S. Representative Robert Hurt, 24th District Senator Emmett Hanger Jr. and 30th District Delegate Ed Scott.
