James H. Drew Carnival arrives, Mountain Festival opens Tuesday

BLUEFIELD — Crews with the James H. Drew Carnival spent most of the day Monday assembling a wide variety of thrill rides, games and other attractions that will open to the public this evening as part of the 2012 edition of the Cole Chevy Mountain Festival.

The Mountain Festival, and the carnival, has been a tradition in the two Bluefields since 1985. But the carnival itself has been coming to city park each Memorial Day weekend for the past 50 years, according to Marc Meachum, president and chief executive officer of the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce.
