  • Covered Bridges for Father’s Day

    by Casey | Posted on June 13th, 2012

    Woolwine in Patrick County is the site of the official Virginia Covered Bridge Festival that occurs every year at the Bob White and Jack’s Creek covered bridges. The festival is this Saturday, June 16, and includes horse and wagon rides, antique car show, a duck race on the river, arts, crafts, great music at both bridge locations, a petting zoo, bounce houses, and delicious food vendors. It’s a free day of family fun that kicks off at 8 AM with the Covered Bridge 5K Run/Walk.

    A great day for family.

    The 5K benefits a variety of local charities including the Patrick County Food Bank, Patrick County Adult Developmental Center, and the Caring Hearts Free Clinic. The route begins near the Bob White Covered Bridge in Woolwine and ends near the Jack’s Creek Covered Bridge. Entrance fee is $25. Register.

    If you get into town early and are looking for a cool way to relax, the Reynolds Homestead at Fairy Stone State Park (just a little over 9 miles away from Woolwine) is hosting “Free Range Possums,” a Blacksburg band that has been described as a “musical conundrum” playing everything from Bach on banjo to swing. Friday night at 7:30 PM. $4 park admission.

    After the festival winds down and before you depart for home, Chateau Morrisette Winery is hosting a Father’s Day Luncheon on Sunday at 11 AM. Chateau Morrisette is located in Floyd, about 9 miles from Woolwine. Reservations are recommended, but regular tours and tastings will be available at noon, 2 and 4 PM if the luncheon is already booked.
