Charles Town Car Show 2014
Charles Town, West Virginia is calling for your help in shutting down Washington Street, the town’s main drag, with the Sixth Annual Charles Town Car Show!
All makes, models and years of cars are welcome to this family-oriented show. The actual car show begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 30th and ends at 3:00 p.m. All cars in the show must be registered. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and ends at 11:00 a.m. The cost to register a vehicle is $15.00.
Along with the show on Saturday, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to enjoy the stores and restaurants along Washington Street as all of them will be open. A DJ will keep the music playing, and festivities will include door prizes and children’s entertainment featuring a clown and face painting activities. There will also be multiple awards for the car show entries. The Top 50 Awards will be announced along with 14 awards in various specialty categories like Best Import, Kids’ Choice, Best Motorcycle, and the Mayor’s Award, to name just a few.
A series of cruise-in events will be held on Friday night before the big Saturday show so you can easily make this your weekend adventure.
A special addition to this year’s show is going to be historic! Those who register are asked to help recreate a 1930s era postcard scene. It depicts Washington Street in downtown Charles Town, West Virginia in the 1930s. The event planners are asking the first 15 to 20 registrants with vehicles as close to the 1930s era as possible to recreate the scene to bring even more nostalgia to Charles Town during the car show. For details on this special portion of the car show, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the Fifth Annual Charles Town Car Show in 2013, more than 300 vehicles were registered and for this year’s show, event planners are expecting even more to join the festivities.
While entertainment and fun are front and center, car show organizers have made this event a party with a purpose. Proceeds from the registration will benefit the Eastern Panhandle Free Clinic, located in Ranson at 1212 North Mildred Street.
The clinic provides medical care to those who do not have the financial means to pay for needed services. Attendees and registrants are also asked to bring canned goods to stock the shelves at Community Ministries, which is operated by a network of 45 churches throughout Jefferson County. Community Ministries, located in Charles Town at 238 West Washington Street, provides short-term assistance to those in need of food, clothing, and financial support.
