BEAVER, WV (WOAY) – Cars of all kinds always take to the skies and make it to the 16th Annual Friends of Charity Motor Show for the biggest and last day of the event, one that looks like it didn’t. that get bigger over time.
“This is the first event of this caliber in the state since the onset of COVID, we’ve had a lot of additional vendors and food vendors, and the car registration has been really ready for pre-registration this year.” said Danny Kincaid, with the auto show steering committee.
From children’s zoos, parades and even educational demonstrations, various types of events are planned throughout the day. One of these demonstrations was a car crash extraction simulation presented by the volunteer firefighters of Ghent and Beaver.
“It’s a demonstration of what it’s like to be in a car accident and have to be cut,” says Ethan Whisenant, a volunteer firefighter from Ghent. “It’s a good educational experience for everyone because it’s a chance to see what is going on, what it is, to see it up close and in a personal way without actually being in a wreck.”
Whether educational or just plain fun, there was plenty of car related activities to see and do. Not only are hundreds of cars provided in the show, but a strong community of car lovers to support it.
“It’s great to be back here to do this again, just to hang out and hang out,” Kincaid says. “The auto show community only sees certain people at certain times of the year at auto shows, I can’t give you the names of some of these people, but tell me what they drive and I can. tell you who they are. “
With all the cars there were plenty of awards to be handed out including the best of decades, best paint and interior, most original and much more.
