During this fun day, there will also be a Backyard BBQ competition, a Kansas City BBQ competition, a disc golf tournament, music, and a kid’s area.

Last year at this event United Way had a vast array of cars, from cars of the future (Electric vehicles) to a 1928 Ford Model A. There will be an award given out people’s choice winner.
