Every year thousands of people flock to the New River Gorge Bridge for the annual Bridge Day Celebration. It’s the only day of the year where people are allowed to walk on the bridge, but they’ll be doing much more than that; most notably, BASE jumping (building, antenna, span, and Earth). This year, Bridge Day will span (get it?) from October 14 to 15, and it promises to be no different! There will be a huge variety of events and vendors in the area to introduce both locals and visitors alike to the many regional artisans and businesses.
If you’re wondering what exactly happens during Bridge Day, you would be hard pressed to keep the list short, but you can know that any one of them is sure to result in an incredible part of the overall experience. Keep reading for a list of some activities that you can expect to enjoy this year at Bridge Day!
