Attendees peruse dozens of vehicles in the car show and enjoy military displays, street food, live music, vendors and a classic Americana pin-up contest. Car show entrants also cruise in a parade down historic Route 66.
Organizations chosen to share in the funds raised are announced around Veterans Day.
