Bridge Day West Virginia
Bridge Day is West Virginia’s largest single-day festival. For more than 40 years, thousands of people have gathered on the New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville each October to watch BASE jumpers take the more than 875-foot leap of faith into the gorge below. For a unique vantage point, watch the jumpers on their descent from your spot on the historic Tunney Hunsaker Bridge.
