POINT PLEASANT — Sunday’s Battle Days Pageant is not only a pageant, it’s a fundraiser for a worthy cause which provides toys for needy, local children at Christmas.
The pageant starts at 2 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 29 at Point Pleasant Junior/Senior High School. Money raised at the pageant goes directly to the local charity, Mason County Toys for Kids. According to Pageant Director and member of Mason County Toys For Kids, Brandy Barkey-Sweeney, she is already getting calls from families in need for the holiday season; families who are finding less organizations who still provide this free service each year.
Battle Days Royalty will attend the upcoming parade and festival on Oct. 4-6 in downtown Point Pleasant. Royalty also have an opportunity to appear in other local parades, perform community service activities and attend other festivals representing Battle Days.
