The WV Freedom Festival will begin Thursday, July 4, and continue until Saturday, July 6, in Downtown Logan.


The event is chucked full of fun-filled family fun, from games and inflatables for kids to motorcycle and car shows. Entertainment includes various bands, a circus show, lip sync contest, dog show and karaoke challenge.


New this year is a themed block party hosted by DJ Bill France. The block party will honor four-year-old Joshua “Gabe” Lyall, the son of Josh and Erina Lyall. Gabe, a “hero” himself and an inspiration for many, has been battling tumors that have invaded his heart, liver and lungs. A biopsy on his liver confirmed the tumors as being stage four hepatoblastoma, which is a rare liver cancer in children. Gabe, a huge superhero fan, has had his story published in a number of Marvel comic books this year. Those attending the block party can dress in a superhero costume.
