The Valley Park Conference Center has partnered with Valley Cakes & Café and will be turned into a Winter Wonderland on Saturday, filled with Princes and Princesses for the Winter Fairy Tale Ball!  Dress your little ones in their favorite prince or princess costume and come enjoy food, dancing, crafts, and costume contests…that’s right!  Very special prizes will be given away for costumes and boys, girls, moms, and dads are all encouraged to participate.  Valley Park is taking precautions for social distancing and masks are required inside.  To help with distancing, they are offering a 2pm-4pm and a 5pm-7pm event.  Tickets are still being sold, but are going fast, so don’t wait to get yours!  Tickets are available at

Additionally on Saturday, there is a Shop Small Event at Area 34.  This event will also be taking social distancing into account, with featured vendors from Putnam, Kanawha, and Cabell Counties coming to share their goods and handmade products.  Putnam County Farmers Market vendors will also be attending to help sustain the Farmers Market through the off months.  This event is from 9-5pm, so you can plan to grab breakfast, lunch, or just your favorite coffee from Drip Coffee, which is located right inside Area 34.

If you’re in the mood for a big brunch this weekend, go to Fairways Bar & Grille or Fireside Grille.  They both have amazing brunch that will definitely not disappoint!

Have a safe and wonderful weekend, Putnam County!
