MAYOR ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING THE CANCELLATION OF THE CHARLESTON BOULEVARD ROD RUN & DOO WOP CAR SHOW
Charleston, W.Va. – Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin today issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of the Charleston Boulevard Rod Run and Doo Wop Car Show.
“The Charleston Boulevard Rod Run and Doo Wop has been a key event in our Capital City for more than a decade — bringing in visitors from across the Mountain State and from across our country. Time and again, we’ve received positive feedback from our local businesses regarding the event's ability to pack hotels, restaurants, and shops.
“The City of Charleston has supported this fun, family friendly event for many years and has continued to work closely with the event organizers. We were disappointed to hear the Rod Run and Doo Wop was cancelled — especially after we included financial support in the City’s budget to help them.”
