It's likely the Calhoun Wood Festival and the West Virginia Molasses Festival, among others, will be getting some financial help from the WV legislature.

In the fine print of the new budget for West Virginia there is funding for 417 different fairs and festivals statewide.

The allocations are being made since the Budget Digest was laid to rest.

Governor Manchin approved the measure which includes more than $2.6 million dollars in lottery revenues for the events, including 25 different Fourth of July celebrations and at least 27 county fairs.

There is also money for festivals celebrating strawberries, pumpkins, apples, peaches, molasses, wine and coal.

All 55 counties are benefiting, but the total funds earmarked per county exceed a hundred-thousand dollars only for Ohio, Greenbrier, Tucker, Logan, Cabell and Kanawha counties.
