GRAND ISLAND, NY - The annual Grand Island Father's Day Lawn Mower Races and Classic Car Show took place along the West River Sunday.

The tradition started back in the late 1960's between some competitive neighbors making a friendly bet whose mower could go the fastest. Now the event has grown so big that hundreds of people come out every year.

The event has added a car show and 5K race over the years.

All of the proceeds from the event goes toward the Relay for Life of Grand Island.
