Barboursville WV is celebrating it’s 200th anniversary this year. The sendoff celebration to this milestone happened over the weekend at the Barboursville Fall Fest. Friday night featured the Las Vegas flair of Rick. K. & The Allnighters.
Main street was packed with vendors and a huge crowd on Saturday night as the Village welcomed Dressed To Kill (Tribute To KISS) and country superstar Aaron Tippin. Out of Tippin’s 9 studio releases, five were certified gold and one earned platinum status. 30 of Tippin’s singles charted on the Billboard Hot Country Song charts and the crowd got to hear most of them including,”Workin Man’s PHD” “Big Boy Toys” “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio” “That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You”.
Tippin got the crowd on their feet with his 2 song encore that included “Where the stars and stripes and eagles fly” and “Kiss This” where he brought special guests Dressed To Kill on stage to close the show. Organizers with the festival say that this was by far the largest crowd that they have had in the history of the event.
Joe Eddins with MPE Entertainment says, “After hearing from the festival directors and discussing the record crowd we are happy to be a part of this great event. We have now seen 4 record crowd at 4 different festivals in 21 days and that is a pretty cool thing!”
