July sparkles in so many ways. To start, Charleston celebrates America’s birthday with fireworks. See this star-spangled tribute with accompanying soundtrack from the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra Brass Band July 3. The West Virginia Power lights up the skies July 4 with fireworks after the team’s home game.

Twinkling tiaras and million-dollar smiles abound when the Mrs, Miss, and Miss Teen International Pageants come to #CWV July 20 – 21 and 26 – 28. Watch for these lovely ladies as they explore our beautiful city and come see them compete for their respective 2018 titles at the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences and the West Virginia Culture Center. We’re also welcoming Miss Pre-Teen contestants this year, who will compete for a miniature version of the crown July 26.

National, regional, and local musicians shine a light on West Virginia native and music icon Bill Withers at a tribute concert July 6 at Haddad Riverfront Park. This Live on the Levee concert is free and may be one of the best attended shows in the summer series.
