Car Show A Big Draw Despite Rain

Greenville Mayor Alan Gaffner presents Erik Estrada with a proclamation and a key to the city.

Rain slowed down the 8th annual Greenville Graffiti Car Show Saturday, but about 75 vehicle owners still drove to downtown Greenville and entered the show.

Celebrity guests Chase from Paw Patrol and Actor Erik Estrada were at the show, moving indoors to greet fans. There was a constant line for Estrada as he took the time to sign autographs, greet each person and have a picture taken.

The car show was sponsored by the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and City of Greenville.

After the event, Chamber Director Elaine McNamara gave her review of the show. She said she was a bit depressed at first due to the weather, but she said the turnout was good despite the rain. The turnout for the meet-and-greet with Erik Estrada was unprecedented. She said some people came from a few states away. She complimented the car show committee and thanked the event sponsors.
