Festivities abound around the region this weekend

Ready for the Buckwheat Festival? And the Pawpaw Festival? And the Morgantown Art Walk? And the kazillion other events happening this weekend?
Trying to keep up with the many exciting community events this weekend, I barely know where to start. I’ve been carefully planning each day of the weekend for about a week now.
First, of course, there is the Buckwheat Festival, Thursday through Sunday in Kingwood. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it. Eat some buckwheat cakes, check out the vendors and 4-H and farm exhibits, and ride the Ferris wheel. It’s always a fun time, and I’m willing to bet you won’t regret your trip to our awesome 77th annual county fair.
Friday evening, Main Street Morgantown hosts its art walk, another always enjoyable event. Participating businesses (most downtown merchants) stay open late showcasing the work of artists.
