The Old Town Festival of Speed & Style will feature more than 100 cars, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and Jaguars, in Alexandria, Virginia, on Sunday.

But that’s not all.

“We’ve hand-picked six cars that will then be paired with models who are dressed up and done up to match the style and elegance of the car,” said Rick Myllenbeck, the show’s founder and chairman.



He expects about 10,000 people to turn out for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

It will take place at the 200 to 400 blocks of King Street, as well as the 100 blocks of North Royal and North Fairfax streets.

The Festival is also hosting a charity ball on Saturday evening from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Those interested can purchase tickets for $75.
