2017 is in full swing and there's so much to look forward to in the coming year in McDowell County. You may not know it, but without the help of volunteers many of Marion's biggest events wouldn't be a success.

If you think you would like to help during an annual shindig in downtown, touch base with the Marion Business Association. At most festivals and gatherings volunteers are needed to sell and distribute drinks and popcorn, take photos and do other odd jobs that are essential for an event to run smoothly.

Some of the events happening this year in Marion include:

-The Easter Bonnet Parade

-Sidewalk Yard Sale

-Donut Festival

-Livermush Festival

-Summer Concert Series

-Independence Day Celebration

-Mountain Glory Festival

-Tailgate Market Fall Festival

-Christmas Parade

-Melodies on Main


More information about helping during any of these events can be found by calling 652-2215.
