A controversial entry into the Natchitoches Car Show caused a stir among locals who took to social media to voice their concern and disdain over the message it portrayed.
The following special statement was issued on Oct. 5 in response:
It has been brought to our attention that a participant in this year’s show expressed messaging on their vehicle that was found to be offensive. Regardless of opinions, our volunteers, sponsors, HDBA nor the City of Natchitoches do not endorse such messaging. We do apologize to those who found the messaging offensive and will cautiously move forward into planning for next year’s show.
The Natchitoches Car Show is a FREE event organized by a mainly volunteer group who seek to support our community and create a family-friendly atmosphere while enjoying the sights of around 400 classic cars each year.
