4th Annual Cars and Cops Continues in Saugus Saturday

The 4th annual Cars and Cops Show of Massachusetts took place today, June 25th at the Square One mall in Saugus. This is a family-fun car show put on by two police officers, Domenic Montano and Matthew Donahue with the purpose of giving back to the community. This year, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Cops for Kids with Cancer Charity.

The first car show took place in September of 2018 and consisted of around 100-125 vehicles, and ever since, it has grown at a promising rate. In 2021 there were a reportedly over 500 vehicles present, and this year was no disappointment. A big attraction for most people has been the presence of antique police cars and fire engines that always draw a crowd.

The addition of food vendors, business vendors, raffles and trophies, as well as games for kids has been helpful in drawing out large amounts of community members of the surrounding area. This year, a panel of judges has been employed to choose the best cars, however there will also be a people’s choice trophy that allows guests to pick their favorite car.

The creators of this event want to provide others with fun attractive to all walks of life, but most importantly raise sufficient funds to support a good cause. Domenic Montano said in an interview with Live Boston, “Matt and I would like to thank the entire community and surrounding police departments for attending the 4th Annual Cars and Cops Car Show of Massachusetts!”

Domenic went on to say, “It was amazing to see the turnout and I’m so proud that collectively we were able to raise money for Cops for Kids with Cancer. Thank you all, we will see you next year for the 5th Anniversary!”
