There are two events this weekend related to the Montague Soapbox Derby:
Saturday August 20th is Montague Old Home Days.
We're looking for carts to be in the parade, and then show off during the day. Race Director Mik Muller will be on hand to answer questions and hand out racer applications, and show off some of last year's carts!
Montague town common, Montague Center (corner of Main Street and Center Street)
Parade starts at 2:00 -- show up at 1:45 if you want to be in it.
Post Parade cart show-off: 3:00
Sunday August 21st is the Soapbox Build Party at Joe Landry's House.
From 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM Joe Landry will open up his studio and workshop to those who need help with their carts. Joe also has about 50 old bicycles set aside just for cutting up and turning into carts and the tools to make it happen! Perfect photo op!
