BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Shade Tree Car Club, Smooth Impressions Car Club, and Beckley Events teamed up to bring classic and interesting vehicles to neighborhoods around Raleigh County.

Residents can watch the cars cruise from the comforts of their home. Organizers, such as Shade Tree Car Club Treasurer and Secretary Stephanie French, are hoping this will bring joy to the communities while many families are staying at home and following guidelines during the pandemic.

“We want to get together and spread cheer throughout Beckley and let everybody know that we can still be together and still have fun,” French said.

The vehicles will ride around the neighborhoods like a parade, while residents practice social distancing.

The route may include Johnstown Rd., left onto Vance Dr., to Mankin Ave. to Wood Street, right on Orchard St., onto Glenn Ave, Marion Street St. Vince St., Spring St. Spring Street, back onto Orchard to Wood to Vance, thru traffic light to Russell Street, Lincoln Street to Johnstown to Garfield Street, briefly back on Russell and along Jefferson Street.
