Burien’s annual Father’s Day Car Show will be Sunday, June 21st from 10am to 4pm, with plenty of cool cars, retro tunes, a chili cook-off and guy-pleasing grub, plus a new charity poker tournament and raffle.
Ogle amazing cars from yesterday and today along SW 152nd Street between 4th Ave SWÂ and 8th Ave SW in downtown Burien. The event has become so popular the action will expand onto 6th Ave SW and into the new Burien Town Square.
Buffed-up beauties in the car show will compete for top billing in nine outside-the-box categories:

Bet on the health of local youth sports by sitting in on the brand new Holdâ€™em for Highline poker tournament or buying a 50/50 raffle ticket. All proceeds from the two activities will go to the Highline Boosters, a local nonprofit organization that benefits Highline High School athletics.
From Noon to 2pm, savor free samples of potentially prize-winning eats from the Chili Cook-Off. The first-place chili will be awarded $250 plus a traveling trophy for a year, second place earns $100, third place $50, and Peopleâ€™s Choice $100.
