Wheeling’s summer events slated for August canceled

WHEELING — In light West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s orders related to COVID-19, the city of Wheeling’s summer events slated for August have been canceled. This includes Waterfront Wednesdays; Toe Tappin’ Tuesdays; Toe Tappin’ Tuesdays, Too; and a Movie Night.

City Manager Robert Herron said the city is committed to following the carefully considered guidelines set down by the governor and — at this point — live concerts are not permitted. Regarding movie night, the number of attendees would be limited to 25 people.

“In late spring, we postponed the start of the summer concerts and movie nights with hopes that residents would still have the opportunity to enjoy some city-sponsored events that are held annually, but with the governor’s restrictions, we simply cannot go forward with the activities that were planned,” he said. “At this point, we will look ahead to next year with optimism in that things will return to some semblance of normalcy and we can host the summer events that are typically held.”

Residents can visit the city’s website at www.wheelingwv.gov or the city’s official Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.
