About 100 cars, from the classic Ford Model T and 1957 Chevy to the modern Tesla and Porsche, drove through the Balfour Senior Living campus in Louisville for a socially distanced car parade for Father’s Day.
“It was good memories,” said Balfour resident Ron Taylor, who lives there with his wife, Kathy Taylor. “That’s what most of the old cars are, just good memories.” He said he saw a 1983 Chevy convertible drive by — the same car he used to “woo” his wife. Kathy Taylor added the car parade was “delightful.”
“They do so many things here to make it fun,” she said.
Many of the 800 residents and staff members at the Balfour campus watched from chairs set up outside or from their balconies. People also lined South Boulder Road to catch a view of the cars as they made their way to Louisville.
For those who couldn’t attend in person, the parade was broadcast on Facebook with live commentary by Mark Johnson, broadcasting director for the University of Colorado Boulder’s athletics.
