The weather was beautiful for the 29th Annual Soap Box Derby! Presented by the Rotary Club of Okotoks, the races were held at Crystalridge Drive between Downey Road and North Railway Street. There was a wonderful display of racing and presentation talent! There was a variety of unique prizes awarded, including “Most Enthusiastic Driver” and “Best Crash Recovery”. Be sure to check out the images below for some creative carts and paint jobs!


The event featured youths aged from 8 to 14 racing in four carts per heat; an intense experience for all involved! All in all, the event was a great way to get kids and their parents involved in the community and participate in exciting outdoor events while the good weather permits it!
