Classic cars, trucks and everything in between – what more could dad want? The 9th annual Father’s Day Show and Shine is set for this Sunday at Riverside Park in Kemptville. The event, put on by the Hwy 43 Car Club, kicks off at 9:00am and runs until 3:00pm. Organizer Kelly Searson says the price is right.
The club brings in truckloads of food and cash donations for the local food bank each year. Between 500 and 600 vehicles will be on display at the show. The burnout contest starts at 1:00pm. Live music will be provided by the Cadillac Rumble Trio. Searson says it’s a great event for the whole family.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 212 will host a pancake breakfast at 7:00am and run a barbecue throughout the afternoon.
