New River Gorge Bridge Day

It's time for the 31st Annual Bridge Day Festival in West Virginia! Right here, right in the middle of the Mountain State, we celebrate the outdoors with a show you've got to experience to believe. We've got a bridge, and we've got a gorge- it's time to jump into it.

Bridge day is the largest extreme sports event and gathering of base jumpers in the world. There are usually more then 450 base jumpers from 10 countries and over 40 states that come to jump off the New River Gorge Bridge. Their all over 200,000 thousand people expected to come to this event. This bridge is 876 ft tall and is the world longest single arch bridge.
