This August marks Parkersburg's 30th Homecoming Festival and there's big plans to make this celebration one of the best.

The schedule and musical acts are announced for the August 17th, 18th, and 19th homecoming events.

Former American Idol contestant Bucky Covington is scheduled to perform on Friday night, and returning to the stage from years ago is the Charlie Daniels Band. They'll be performing on Sunday night.

With all these great musical acts, homecoming board members are working to find a way to remember the best!

"We have got a list of every entertainer that has been at the Parkersburg Homecoming since it started with the major entertainment. We're working on putting a walk of fame we're gonna call it with all these people in a brick downtown somewhere so that people could look at it. And I think they'd be amazed at how many people we brought here that have turned out to be national known stars," Homecoming President, Randal Roberts, says.

With Point Park now open, there's also plans to use the facility with more water activities including brining back the Sternwheelers.
