Lebanese Heritage Festival to be held Sunday

Updated: Monday, August 4 2014, 05:42 PM EDT
OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. -- On the second Sunday of August each year, the grounds of Oglebay’s Levenson Shelter are transformed into a lively festival celebrating the unique Lebanese culture.
It's called Mahrajan.
Sunday marks its 81st year, and it’s held by Wheeling's "Our Lady of Lebanon Church."
On Monday, volunteers were making some of the food that they will have at the festival -- things like lamb shish kabobs, grape leaves, spinach pies, and of course a variety of other Lebanese pastries.
There will also be entertainment.
“There will be continuous entertainment all day,” Organizer Carol Dougherty said. “Food booths, inflatables and games for the kids, and our food is a la carte. Go through the line and pick what you want."
Authentic Lebanese food is served from Noon-7 p.m. on Sunday and admission is free. Proceeds will be used to enhance the Veterans Memorial that honors parishioners.
