A fitting opening to Veterans Day Weekend is the Ahwatukee car show

The annual Ahwatukee Car Show to benefit veterans will be held 9 a.m.-1 pm. Saturday, Nov. 9 at Ahwatukee Board of Management headquarters, 4700 E. Warner Road, Ahwatukee.

The show is free and open to the public for viewing and free to register a vehicle for if you’re a veteran.

Otherwise, vehicle registration is $15 per vehicle in advance and $18 the day of the event.

There also will be a pancake breakfast as well as grilled brats and burgers along with raffles. Proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

There will be best of show and sponsor’s choice awards as well as awards in eight vehicle categories.
