CATLETTSBURG, Ky. — The cherished annual tradition of the Labor Day parade in Catlettsburg is just around the corner.

“We are really excited about the Labor Day event,” Catlettsburg Mayor Faith Pike said. “A lot of people are involved and have been working real hard to make this year a great event.”

Sunday there will be church services, Trade Days, the mayor’s reception, an ice cream social, gospel music, reunions, and Youth Fest. Monday will be the popular pancake breakfast, more Trade Days, and then the Labor Day Parade. Live music will be on the Courthouse Stage. This year’s Grand Marshal will be Boyd County Alumni Savannah Wheeler, 2019 Kentucky Miss Basketball.
