The Second Annual Soap Box Derby mid-day feature event of the Consecon Community Day festivities, is set for the Mill Street hill in Consecon at 1pm. Registration (free of charge) at the intersection of Consecon Main and County Road 29 beginning at noon.

The Soap Box Derby is open to both girls and boys age 5 years through 12 years. Competitors are grouped into three age categories, 5 and 6 year olds, 7 years through 9 years, 10 years through 12 years.

Competitors will make individual runs down the hill for best times, (not racing against each other head to head). Fastest overall time in each category will determine the age group winner. Helmets are mandatory for all competitors and all Soap Box cars must have a braking mechanism installed, otherwise the cars will be considered ineligible to compete in the event.

Free design plans are available for anyone wishing to build their own Soap Box car, but  extra Soap Box cars are available for any child wishing to take part in the event.

All safety precautions will be in place and St. John Ambulance will be in attendance during the event.

Following the children’s event will be a senior’s run for anyone 13 years or older who love to have an opportunity to see how they stack up against the kids. The same safety precautions apply.
