Coal Festival

J-E Editor

The Providence Coal Festival Committee has announced the schedule of events for the 38th Annual Coal Festival, which will kick off Tuesday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m.

For years the event was held on the second week of June, but the last few years have seen the date pushed back into May. Although not a popular change for some parents, with schools still is session, it’s a change that was necessary.
