Every year, Ford Mustang owners from Kitsap and beyond gather on the Port Orchard waterfront for a beauty pageant on the auto scale. It’s the annual Mustangs on the Waterfront car show.

It’s an institution of both exhibition and brevity, hosted by the Kitsap Mustang Club. This year, the group marks its 20th anniversary of letting the ponies, past and present, out of the corral and onto the waterfront.

Within the club, it’s said that “ownership of a Mustang is not only a lifestyle ... it’s a way of life.”

Throughout the summer, Kitsap Mustang Club members flaunt their cars at shows around the state, and each July they host a show on their turf.

Cars come from all over Washington and the greater Northwest for what’s been pegged as the sole Mustangs-only show in the state.

More than 200 cars are expected at the Bay Street parking lot from the entrance of the Kitsap Bank parking to the gazebo at Waterfront Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27.

All Ford Mustangs are welcome, $15 per entry. Prizes will be awarded for best in show. Spectators are free.
