The Soapbox Derby will be made up of teams of four people who will race against the clock for prizes. Awards for best dressed and wackiest design, with the main winners being awarded a framed photo of their soapbox crossing the finishing line and their name on the Soap Box Derby Perpetual Cup sponsored by Wehrly Bros.
The soapbox derby will be a fun event for both participants and spectators, families and visitors can enjoy the show and experience that feel-good factor that good-natured competitive fun generates.
