The town of Beckley’s annual summer car and bike show will be held this weekend if the rain continues
BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) — Beckley’s Summer Car and Bike Show will make its long-awaited return to downtown this weekend.
The Town of Beckley and Shade Tree Car Club are working together this year to co-host the event.
It should be held this Saturday, July 30 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Word Park and in the city centers, that is to say, weather permitting. Vehicle check-in will take place between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Beyond cars and bikes, live musical entertainment is another highlight of the event. The “How Great Thou Art” theater group will entertain the crowd with Motown from 5:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Word Park. Country musicians Alan Kinsler and Peyton Alexis will also perform from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Cardinal Sculpture.
There will be several food vendors, games and activities. About 30 trophies are expected to be presented after the show, including the Mayor’s Choice and City Department Favorites, and the People’s Choice, among many others.
“It’s always a fun show and people like to do the shows downtown, and like I said, we’re going to be handing out trophies from different departments in the city, so it’s a chance to interact with some of the city’s employees, as well as the Shade Tree Car Club,” says Jill Moorefield, Beckley’s Events Manager.
There is a $15 vehicle registration fee that qualifies owners for a souvenir dash plate, as well as specialty awards and prizes.
