Tradition is well honored in Hardy County and communities make it a point to gather together to celebrate "the good life" here.
One Hundred Years of Rails on June 24-26, 2010 in Petersburg, WV celebrates the history of the steam locomotive and its impact on the Potomac Highlands, including Hardy County.

Santa's North Pole Express held in December. A cooperative effort of the Hardy County Tour and Crafts Association, and the Potomac Eagle, this special holiday journey promises a story time featuring the popular "The Polar Express", hot chocolate and cookies, and a visit from Santa himself! Children can also bring along a copy of the book if they wish. The train is scheduled to depart from the Jefferson Street Crossing in Moorefield at 5:00 pm and again at 7:30 pm each day. Boarding will begin about 30 minutes prior to departure. Of course, the Conductor will do his best to keep the train on time for this whimsical journey to the North Pole!
