Soapbox Derby (Project 365-8/17/2013)

Sunday, August 25, 2013

I have wanted to take the boys to this since we first moved here, but we’d never been able to go. This year our calendar was free so off we went to the Adult Soapbox Derby at Mt. Tabor. It was just as Portlandish as you might imagine. There were people who were serious about it and had very streamlined cars and then there was Santa, Three Men in a Tub, The Scooby Doo Mystery Van and a car full of presidents. We only stayed for about an hour (it lasts all day), but we got a feel for what it’s all about. Next year we might bring a picnic and stay longer.
