Bike down to Heritage Port Sunday morning and participate in the 2015 Heritage Trail Tour, made possible by generous sponsors and by thousands of volunteer hours donated by members of the Ohio Valley Trail Partners and residents of the Ohio Valley. Money raised by this event supports expansion and care for the Wheeling Heritage Trail. We hope you enjoy it!

Saturday 7 p.m. – Ron Retzer, Classic Rock Favorites
Monday 7 p.m. – The Dennis McClung Blues Band, Original and Classic Blues
