JAMESTOWN – The annual Downtown Jamestown cruise-in has been canceled due to COVID-19 health concerns.

In a statement to the media on Wednesday, the Jamestown Community Chamber of Commerce and Der Kobblers Automobile Association announced the news.







Generally held in August, the annual event has been ongoing for 27 years, drawing over 200 classic and custom cars and trucks and thousands of spectators downtown.

Officials cited a focus on the health and safety of the community as the reason for the decision.





They say plans are already underway to hold the event next year.

Recently, the Chautauqua County Fair and Lucille Ball Comedy Festival were among other community events canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
