Allison Rhea blogs about upcoming events that everyone should be looking forward to!

Oh Summertime! I'm so excited.  If today was any kind of preview to this's going to be a hot one!

Like last year, this summer will bring lots of fun outdoor events to the city of Parkersburg and Marietta.  Here are some of the ones that I look forward to every year!

As a co-sponsor, the on-air folks at WTAP will once again emcee the Multi-Cultural Festival.  I will be introducing some of the performers Saturday night and I am just really looking forward to it.  Last year was my first year emceeing the event and I had a lot of fun.  The performers are so unique and it's always great to experience different cultures that you may not otherwise get to.  I hope everyone makes it out that weekend because it should be a good show! June 19-June 21 at City Park.

Something new for me this year...I get to introduce the opening act at the Julianne Hough concert this June, at Marietta College, since Fox Parkersburg is a co-sponsor.  The concert was pushed back to June 1 because of Hough's success on "Dancing with the Stars".  The opening acts have also changed...they are now The Carter Twins and Love and Theft!  I'm not sure if tickets are still available, but it should be a good show if you can still make it.

You can check out music by The Carter Twins and Love and Theft at and

And of course...who can forget the Sternwheel Festival in Marietta!  That should be a blast as well.  Here's to having a fun-filled summer!!!
