16th Father's Day car show

The 16th annual Father's Day car show took over City Park in Kelowna on Sunday afternoon.

Close to 500 cars rolled into the park and festivities, including live music and food, began at noon. They attracted a similar number of vehicles last year, and people from throughout the interior attend.

The event is put on by Boyd's Autobody and Glass. Every year for the past 16 they pick a different charity. 

This year's proceeds are going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

"All the proceeds go to the charity, everybody that comes in pays $30 or $25 if you pre-registered," said Dorothy Abougoush, whose husband Gordie owns Boyd's Autobody and started the car show. They plan on donating at least $10,000. 

According to Boyd's website, the show has grown from a 40-car meet and greet to a 500 car show and shine and fundraiser that is a stop for over 20,000 Kelowna citizens on Father's Day.

The event runs 11 to 4 every Father's Day.
