Pandemic extinguishes Mansion by Candlelight

PARKERSBURG — Mansion by Candlelight, held in October at the Blennerhassett Mansion on Blennerhassett Island, has been canceled because of the pandemic, organizers said.

“After much thought and consideration, for the safety of the visitors, performers, and volunteers we felt it was prudent to forego this year’s event,” Assistant Superintendent Craig Pyles of the Blennerhassett Island State Park said.

The event was scheduled for Oct. 9-10.

The park is open 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, call 304-420-4800.
