Chester Fall Bash
The 2019 Fall Bash hosted by the Chester Volunteer Fire Department is to be held this Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 in the Harv at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort.
Doors open at 3 p.m. on Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
Both days include fun, food and a chance to win cash and prizes, which totals $1.5 million.
The Fall Bash is held each year and is not only one of the largest events of its kind in the community, but also in the country. It attracts people from all over the world. According to the event’s website, all proceeds from the event are used to fund Chester VFD Operations. In addition, the Chester VFD uses Fall Bash funds to sponsor events in the community such as the annual 4th of July celebration and fireworks, carnivals, and children’s education programs.
Some ticket packages are still for sale but are expected to sell out. They can be purchased by mail, at the fire hall, Chester American Legion, and online.
