Bridge Day 2013 was a success!
With tens of thousands of people visiting the bridge on October 19, and hundreds of BASE jumpers and Rappellers, we consider Bridge Day 2013 a success! The human catapult, brought back for the second year in a row, seemed to be a huge attraction to people of all ages! Rappellers also drew the attention of many as they raised the West Virginia State flag and the United States flag during the opening of the bridge. It was a field day for jumpers, rappellers, rafters, photographers, vendors and even sightseers! We would like to thank everyone who made Bridge Day 2013 possible!

We hope to see everyone back out for Bridge Day 2014!
