FOLLANSBEE - Follansbee Community Days will be held July 12-14 in the parking area of the Follansbee Community House near Follansbee Park.

This is the second year for this location because it offers more space for booths. There will be a kickoff at the park Sunday before the festival, offering free food and admission to the city's swimming pool and games for children.

The Follansbee Community Days Derby, which is a soapbox-style race, will be held July 7. A 5K Race will be held July 11 on Highland Hills. A community day parade is set for 1 p.m. July 13. A classic car show is slated for 10 a.m. July 14.

Musical acts that will be perform include: Pittsburgh Doo Wop, The Marcels, Refugee, Stevie Breen, The Joseph Sisters, Vince Villanova, Joel Smith, the Driftin Hoopie Experience, Shout: Legends of Soul, Legend and Rag doll, a Frankie Valli and Four Seasons tribute Band.

Dates and times are still being finalized.

A special highlight this year will be the display of a half-sized replica of the Washington, D.C., Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
