FOUR GOOD REASONS TO VISIT OGLEBAY THIS SUMMER

 WHEELING, W.Va., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Oglebay Resort has big plans for summer '93 with four fascinating special event weekends planned, each as different as night and day.
 A major Civil War re-enactment weekend June 19-20 involving hundreds of re-enactors is expected to attract crowds of history buffs to Oglebay's 1,500 acres. Booming cannons, rushing cavalry and lots of blue and gray will be the norm on the resort's lush hillsides. An authentic encampment will demonstrate living conditions and musical entertainment will recall the period. Free admission.
 Big band music, a patriotic concert, a teddy bear outing at Good Zoo, various entertainment and a picnic will be among the treats during the July 10-11 weekend when the late benefactor and patriot Courtney Burton will be commemorated. The Lettermen will perform in the amphitheater on July 9 to kick off the weekend. A rousing patriotic concert synchronized to the Cascading Waters show on the lake will precede a huge fireworks display. Burton, who died in August, was the grandson of Earl Oglebay who bequeathed Waddington, now Oglebay, to Wheeling nearly 70 years ago.
 Oglebay's first West Virginia Glass Festival for state and regional artisans will be Aug. 7-8 in Good Children's Zoo. Glass crafters will show and sell their work, as well as some related crafts, in a festival atmosphere. It will complement the Oglebay Institute Glass Museum and demonstration area in Carriage House Glass. Continuous entertainment and good food will make this a special weekend. Admission.
 An All-Classes Car Show, predicted to be the largest ever held in the Tri-State, will be on Aug. 28-29 in Good Zoo. At least 400 cars will be displayed in the zoo and at nearby Site I. Classes include everything from vintage autos to street rods, classics and custom trucks. In all, 26 classes will be judged. Anyone wishing to enter a car for $8 each may call 304-242-0980. Entertainment on two stages and a picnic barbecue will be featured. Admission.
 Oglebay's Wilson Lodge offers a weekend package (Friday-Saturday) for $74 per person per night with a Sunday night stay half price. Children stay free in the room. Wristbands may be purchased to include tennis, mini-golf, par 3 golf, swimming, paddleboating, fishing and admission to the zoo. Call 1-800-624-6988 for reservations.
