West Virginia International Auto Show starts up at Charleston Civic Center

Posted: Updated:

If the allure of more than 500 brand new and vintage vehicles all in one location appeals to you then Charleston is the place to be this weekend.

The 2013 West Virginia International Auto Show begins its 15th edition on Friday. Crews spent several days getting the Charleston Civic Center ready for tens of thousands of visitors. They've also been working to get the vehicles unloaded from trailers and places into their display areas.

This year the technology inside the vehicles will be in the spotlight. "Hey, we're gearing up for an exciting show with lots of new product, lots of entertainment features, great technology on display," said Ruth Lemmon, President of the West Virginia Auto and Truck Association.

Attendees are invited to check out all the vehicles, sit behind the wheels, inspect engines, kick the tires and even take a spin in several new models.

Representatives from leading automotive manufacturers will also be at the show to answer questions and provide information on the latest vehicles.

The West Virginia International Auto Show runs this Friday through Sunday at the Charleston Civic Center.

Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for seniors (62 and older) and children (7-12). Children 6 and younger are admitted free. On Family Day, Sunday, January 27, all children 12 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
