Did you take your dad anywhere special on Father’s Day?

The Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan organization, also known as M.E.Ch.A., of Bakersfield College had a unique car show on Father’s Day on the Bakersfield College soccer field.

M.E.Ch.A. put on the car show to provide information about safe sex, how to have safe sex and to promote abstinence. It was also to provide information about fatherhood.

“If you’re going to make love, use a glove,” said Dolores Huesta, a M.E.Ch.A. motivational speaker.

M.E.Ch.A.’s goal was for students to go to a four-year college and to reinforce fatherhood values through safe sex, according to club officials.

By setting up AIDS booths, handing out condoms and information about HIV and the AIDS virus, talking about abstinence and how to have safe sex, M.E.Ch.A. openly “promoted fatherhood and education for our community and future generations,” said Jo Ann Acosta, a BC employee who volunteered at the event.

Many people came to the June 16 car show to look at the wide variety of automobiles and entertainment being provided for them on Father’s Day.

The entertainment included singing from Abel Nunez, who is also a member of the BC mariachi band, and music from local station HOT 94.1.

Most of the people showing cars have been showing for years, but a few were first timers. Darrell Marzett, who had his first car show this Father’s Day, said “It’s alright, not that many people.”

Children enjoyed the inflatable jolly jumps, an ice cream vendor and booths.

Leo Morales, Daniel Castro and Joseph Gallegos, all enjoyed the jolly jumps.

M.E.Ch.A. club also provided homemade food. They had multiple taco booths, drink booths, and shaved ice.
