More than 3,000 people attended the Village’s Annual Father’s Day Car show Sunday on Lawndale Avenue in Lyons to view classic and antique vehicles going back a century.

Highlights of the event included a display of more than 200 impressive cars, live music from the popular band the Redmond’s, beer and food from local vendors, an indoor craft show and various children’s activities.

 Car Show Organizer and Lyons’ Parks and Recreation Director Frank Torres said he was thrilled with large turnout of car show participants and attendees.

“Many people in the village look forward to this event all year long so it is important we give them a good show and a day filled with fun,” Torres said.

Mayor Christopher Getty, who attends the event every year with his family, said he was proud of the support village departments provided to the organizing and planning of the annual event.

 “Lyons is a great place to live and we want to continue to offer our residents memorable events and activities that they can share with their families year after year,” said Mayor Getty.

“Our employees work hard every year to support this event and other public events hosted by the Village of Lyons.”

 Getty said residents should look forward to next year as they aim to make the annual car show bigger and better.

 “We come to this event every year and each time we come were are always more and more impressed,” said Lyons resident Mike Shipbaugh.
