The restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic claimed another summer staple recently as the decision was made to cancel the 19th Annual Waggoner Car Show. The event, which was scheduled for Aug. 15, draws hundreds of cars to the Waggoner Centennial Hall grounds every year, nearly doubling the town’s population.
“It was a hard decision to make but we believe its the right one for this year’s show,” the Waggoner Car Show Committee said via Facebook. “We have such great sponsors that help us tremendously and they have been going through so much the past couple months we just can’t see asking them to help this year.”
The organizers said that the cancellation of other car shows around the area also affected their decision as most of their attendees come to Waggoner due to word of mouth at these events.
“We appreciate every single one of our sponsors and people that have helped us make this show one of the best in the area,” the committee said. “So for now we will see everyone next year, so please stay safe and try to enjoy the summer the best we can!”
