Parkersburg City Park was abuzz with folks Sunday for the final day of the State Honey Festival.
The festival has something to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth.
Local beekeepers and artisans set up booths around the park with items to sell.
It's not just a great place for local beekeepers to sell their honey, but also a way for new people to get involved.
Experts are on hand with all the equipment needed to start your own sweet business.
"This festival gives the local beekeepers and especially the people that want to get into beekeeping as a hobby, we have the experts here. They can come and answer all their questions. Tell them what they need to do. It's an educational experience. And a fun experience," says organizer Tom Riddle.
