The annual Classic Car Cruise from the YMCA Paul Cline Sports Complex to the Historic District will take place on Friday, July 18th in conjunction with the Friends of Coal Auto Fair. The cruise will leave the Y complex at 6:00 p.m. and follow Route 19 to Johnstown Road to Kanawha Street, and new this year – participants will cruise along the old Valley Drive (now Robert C. Byrd Drive) – and arrive in uptown to line the streets of Neville, Heber & Main with their classic rides. Dash plaques will be provided to 100 vehicle owners who check-in uptown. Participants will be eligible to win specialty trophies, including selections by the Mayor and City Departments.
In addition to viewing the amazing vehicles, attendees can check out vendor booths and enjoy free concerts featuring music by The Backtimers at Word Park and Jada Vance on Main Street. Jada Vance is an American Idol contestant with ties to West Virginia.
