Southern West Virginian families highly anticipate the return of the 26th Annual Kids Classic Festival, a multi-day, community-wide festival offering numerous family activities while involving local organizations and businesses, all with the goal of providing affordable entertainment and events for our youth.
While festival events officially begin Saturday, Sept. 2, the Boots vs Badges Charity Softball Game will act as the festival’s kickoff celebration at 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 31.
The Beckley Fire Department will play for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), while the Beckley Police Department will play for the West Virginia Kids Cancer Crusaders (WVKCC).
The game will be held at the Linda K. Epling Stadium at 200 Stadium Drive in Beckley.
Tickets are priced at $5 for adults and $3 for school age children the day of the game, but tickets purchased before August 30, either at the Beckley Fire Department and Beckley Police Department are $3.
