Five reasons to check out Kars for Kids this weekend


Tim Rouse and his grandson Jeramyiah, 3, take in last year’s 7th annual Kars for Kids car show.

The 8th annual Kars for Kids show, an annual car show that benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista, returns to town on Saturday. Put on by the Boys & Girls Club and the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 28, the show is fun for the whole family. If you need more than one reason to check out beautiful cars and support a good cause, we’ve got five for you.

1. It’s a car buff’s paradise.

A variety of unique and beautiful cars, trucks and motorcycles from near and far will be on display, ranging from antique to modern and sleek.

“The cars are from local car owners, they come in, they enter, the register for the show, so it’s local people in the community,” said Jay Hamwright, chief professional officer at the Boys & Girls Club. “There’s also people from outside the city who participate, as well — everybody can register their car for the show.”

2. You can vote for your favorites.

People’s Choice is among the awards presented at the show, said Hamwright.

“We just do a top-10 overall for our show, voted by the people in the community at the event. So, if you come, you can vote on your favorite car,” he said.

3. There are plenty of opportunities for selfies.

One of the highlights of the event is taking pictures with the beautiful vehicles. Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels’ antique police car is especially popular for photo ops, said Hamwright.

4. It won’t cost you a dime

The show is free and open to the public, said Hamwright. If people do want to spend some cash, vendors will be there and folks can participate in an auction and raffles as well.

5. Have a cool car? You can still register

Although online registration for entries has closed, you can still register your vehicle the day of the event, according to the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista website. Even if you don’t snag a prize, your fee goes toward supporting the community’s youth.
