ROSEVILLE — A Roseville cemetery has canceled plans for a hot rod car show following public criticism that the burial grounds aren’t the proper place for such an event.

The Roselawn Cemetery’s board of directors says it decided not to hold this weekend’s “Rods and Stones” show because of negative feedback. A statement from the board says the car show was an effort to “make cemeteries less intimidating and forbidding.”
