Parkersburg - After May's devastating EF5 tornado tore apart the town of Parkersburg, its people are trying to put the past behind them and celebrate what they still have.
The Parkersburg Fun Days are a tradition and they have helped lighten the mood a bit.
Make no mistake what happened here in May has not been forgotten.
But for a few hours the town has been able to remember what it was like before and what it may be like again.
Mayor Hayworth says the rebuilding process is going better than expect. He anticipates they will start work on the new high school within the next few weeks.
