If you have a sweet tooth, there's not better place to be than the 31st Annual West Virginia Honey Festival at City Park.

Saturday was day one of the 31st Annual West Virginia State Honey Festival in Parkersburg. Organizers say crowds started showing up as soon as the gates opened Saturday morning at 9. The festival offers a wide variety of things to do including shopping, food vendors and and live entertainment.

Honey Festival Treasurer, Linda Walker, says it's important to support local bee keepers because bees help support the local ecosystem.

"The bees really help with our food supplies. So, it's really important to come down and support the bee keepers who keep track of all these bees and make the honey for us," Walker says.

The Honey Festival runs all weekend long.
