2nd LIB Invitational Soap Box Derby

LIB’s invitational soap box derby returns for its second year! Last year’s inaugural derby saw more than 20 teams race to the finish line in some really wild wheels including a banana-shaped soap box and a wheel barrel tub equipped with a rubber ducky and all. Come see what kooky ideas are built this year! Registration is not open to the public, but come on down and take part in the spectacle!

When: 2-5 p.m. Saturday (car line up and parade 1:30pm)
Where: On a steep hill in between the Woogie and Compass peninsulas, smack dab in the middle of the festival.
