Parkway celebration to begin
The Blue Ridge Parkway will celebrate 75 years in September 2010.
At the 50th anniversary celebration in 1985, more than 6,000 people attended festivities at Cumberland Knob near Galax.
Parkway officials expect double that number for the 75th anniversary celebration to be held at the Blue Ridge Music Center and Cumberland Knob on Sept. 10-11, 2010.
A year-long schedule of events will lead up to the grand celebration in 2010, with the first occurring right here in Galax.
