The 2018 elections have since passed and surely nobody thought Wheeling would see another presidential visit anytime soon.
Well, we thought wrong.
Straight from Mount Rushmore, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln stopped past the Wheeling Visitors center today. They’re campaigning for the Perkins Restaurant and Bakery Fantasy in Lights Christmas Parade.
“They’re going to be in the Christmas parade coming up next weekend. Thanks to Uniglobe, Ohio Valley Travel, they are sponsoring this group of presidents, blockheads I would call them. It’s great having them here. It keeps the Wheeling Christmas parade, Fantasy and Lights parade fresh. There’s different things going on. We’re looking forward to having several thousand friends next week,” said Frank Obrien, Director, Wheeling Visitors Center.
The four presidents aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They will be popping up in several other surprise locations around the Ohio Valley.
