West Virginia Folk Festival Belles

A unique aspect of the Folk Festival is honoring outstanding women. Most are selected by their county Community Educational Outreach Service clubs. They must be at least 70 years old, represent the pioneering spirit of West Virginia, and reside within WV.

There were 27 counties represented at this year's Festival.

It is a joy to see the ladies in their costumes. Thank heavens this year's temperatures were bearable and not as hot and humid as in past years.
