The tradition continues…

Posted: Wednesday, Jul 3rd, 2013

MIKE AND MELISSA GARVIN sporting the Taylor County Fireworks t-shirts, are standing by the “rack” displays that will contain the fireworks, next to the trailer used to haul the fireworks to the location.

GRAFTON- What began as a backyard fireworks display down a secluded farm road, turned into one of the most attended fireworks spectacles in the surrounding states. When Dr. William C. “Nick” Nicholas began his tradition, only a handful of friends and family members attended his 4th of July fireworks show.

Then, through word of mouth, the show grew into what many Taylor County residents remember as “the” display to watch on the 4th. Spectators from as many as five states surrounding West Virginia, would travel to see what Dr. Nicholas had in store, year after year.

The fireworks display begins Thursday July 4, at 10 p.m. and a rain date is scheduled for July 6.
