Ironton aLive is hosting two events this week for the community.

The October Business After Hours is set for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn Express and the inaugural Heritage Festival will be 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday at the Farmers Market, with a preview from 4-6 p.m. on Friday.

Business After Hours gives members of the community an opportunity to fellowship as well as serve as Ironton aLive’s yeary meeting to celebrate the past year.

“We’ll display pictures and events that we’ve done in the past year,” Sam Heighton, of Ironton aLive and manager of the farmers market, said. “We’re inviting everyone in the Tri-State.”

The inaugural Heritage Festival will feature live music, various arts and crafts from local vendors, a homebuilt hot rod and chopper show and more.

“There will be big white tents set up for the artisans, three different music groups and a wine tasting at The Depot restaurant,” Heighton said. “We’re really looking forward to it.”
