Father’s Day in Kelowna recap: cars, bars and … ‘chew chew’ trains

Good job, pops. Keep it up, or youโ€™re getting a coffee mug next year

Whether you celebrated by kicking back and having your children tend to you like a squire feeds a king from the grapevine; or went downtown to check out the car show; or maybe it was a day to celebrate the life of a lost loved one and remember their dedication as a family member; yesterday was all about the fathers, both present and past.

Kelowna’s Father’s Day began at 9 a.m. when the chief flipped a pancake at Community Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast and Carwash, hosted by Joe Rich Fire on Highway 33.

The cost of breakfast and car wash were by donation and all the proceeds went to the Joe Rich Fire Rescue Equipment Fund.

Afterwards, the annual Boyd Autobody and Glass Father’s Day Charity Car Show showed off its grand display of luxurious cars.

Check out these rip-roarers and local residents enjoying the sunny day.

The exhibit aimed to please, as the selection varied from every car across the spectrum.

And if you missed it, Capital News shared 10 facts about Father’s Day that you might not have heard of before.
