Marion to get a new name

September 24, 2002

On October 12, 2002, the Town of Marion will cease to be, but will become the town of Mountain Dew, Virginia, for that day only as a part of Marion Downtown!'s Mountain Dew Days celebration.

Marion Town Council voted Sept. 5 to pass a resolution proclaiming Saturday, Oct. 12, as Mountain Dew Day and to change the town's name to Mountain Dew, Virginia, for one day commencing 12:01 a.m. on Oct. 12 and ending at 11:59 p.m. that same day.

"We've celebrated Mountain Dew Days since 1999," said Marion Mayor David Helms. "Each year the festival's grown, and this year we're planning a three-day weekend full of activities for the whole family."

Marion's association with the popular soft drink Mountain Dew goes back to the actual development of the Mountain Dew formula enjoyed by consumers today by Marion resident Bill Jones and the local TIP Bottling Company. According to Ken Heath, executive director of Marion Downtown!, Jones sold the Mountain Dew formula to Pepsi.
