POINT PLEASANT — This year’s Battle Days Celebration is Oct. 2-4 with events planned all weekend long, including two living history performances and high tea with the Princess of the Point for children.
This is only the second year for the outdoor theater living history performance and the first year for the princess tea event.
This is the second year the Battle Days Committee will present its “History in the Round” with two performances on Friday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., at Tu-Endie-Wei State Park. “History in the Round” tells the story of the Princess of the Point through sound, lighting and dramatic presentations. The public is invited to come out to hear the princess’ tragic story as it intertwines with that of the Battle of Point Pleasant, Ann Bailey and Chief Cornstalk.
Some seating is provided but bringing a lawn chair is suggested. There is no cost for this event and very little walking is required. This is an opportunity to enjoy outdoor theater and relive Point Pleasant’s history.
As for the princess tea event, all princesses, ages four through 10, are invited to dress up in their best gowns and tiaras for high tea with the Princess of the Point. The tea will be held on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. in the “Enchanted Forest” at Tu-Endie-Wei State Park.
According to organizers, the Princess of the Point and her forest friends will serve tea and cakes to all princesses under the pavilion in their magical kingdom. Cost is $8 per princess which includes admission, refreshments and favors. Limited seating is available. To make a reservation please contact the princess’ personal secretary at (304) 675-6002, on or before Sept. 30.
This year’s Princess of the Point is Nicole Williams.
