Rod Run and Doo Wop returns to Charleston


CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – COVID-19 has caused a lot of big events to be canceled but things are starting to return to normal. 

Charleston Mayor Amy Goodwin says the Rod Run and Doo Wop is coming back this fall after being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. This year’s event will take place from Oct. 7 to Oct. 9 on Kanawha Boulevard. 

“You’re going to see some of the most prized cars on the East Coast,” Goodwin said. “We’re so happy to host them back here in the City of Charleston… It brings tourism dollars, it brings people back into our city. This is something folks have looked forward to for so many years and we’re so happy to continue the tradition.”
