Sept. 14, 1923 – Follansbee Boosters Annual Jubilee

The annual Jubilee served as a means to raise funds for the city including Pastime Park.  The events included motorcycle and auto races, water battles between fireman from local towns and boxing shows.  The boxing matches were on Main Street between Ohio and Penn.   One hundred year old Joe Prest recalled that the motorcycle and car races occurred on Virginia Avenue. There were many other events to entertain the hundreds of people attending. The Dokie band and degrce team preformed.
