Downtown PKB is hard at work beautifying downtown.
Fifteen volunteers collected trash, weeded and planted flowers.
Workers say there's a lot to be gained by cleaning up the neighborhood.
"There is an effort being made to preserve the history and make a difference and make it nicer and draw more people down here, which will be great for our business of course and all the businesses down here," said Chelsey Maiden, a volunteer who also works in the downtown area.
Downtown PKB has more in store for making Parkersburg a great place to live.
Next week's event will include a concert for children.
