Round 3 of ‘Groovin’ in the Hill’ this weekend

By Stephen Baldwin, RealWV

Tired of seeing Oak Hill residents visit other communities for weekend activities, local organizer Allyson Wyatt has put together “Groovin’ in the Hill” as a summer concert/food truck series. After two successful previous events this summer, it returns this weekend for round three at the Lively Amphitheater downtown.

“How could you not love good food and good music?” Allyson says. “All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event.” 

Food trucks will begin serving folks at 3pm. You can expect to see the following food trucks lining the streets: Holy O’s, Aurora Ice, Hilltop Coffee, The 304, Paradise Treats, New River Slices, and Hungry Hutt.

Then the music begins at 6pm with Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle with special guests, Long Point String Band.

Based in Cincinnati, Buffalo Wabs is a four-piece Americana band that likes to stomp their feet and then serenade the crowd with a ballad. Over the years, they’ve played with Tyler Childers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Spirit Family Reunion.

Allyson pitched Groovin’ in the Hill to the Lively Family and the CIty of Oak Hill, and they both are proud supporters of this new concert/food series. “We couldn’t do this without them,” remarks Allyson. 

The series will conclude on September 9 with a mix of local and well-known artists. All concerts are free. Attendees purchase their own food from vendors. 

Stay tuned to RealWV for previews of upcoming concerts in the series this summer.
