The City of West Columbia Staff will gather to practice run Soap Box Derby cars for the 1st Annual Kinetic Derby Day on April 21, 2018.  In preparation for the event, The Eastbound lanes of Meeting Street will be closed from 10 AM – 11 AM on Saturday, January 20, 2018.

This unique celebration will include a parade of kinetic sculptures (human-powered, handmade floats that highlight the community’s pride and creativity). The parade is followed by an afternoon of adult and child soapbox derby racing.

Cheer on design ingenuity during the parade and at the soapbox derby as they careen into a giant, messy grits finishing zone. Then, browse the booths featuring local artists and vendors selling and displaying various arts and crafts.

Food trucks will be onsite, too, serving up tacos, hoagies, ice cream and more. And kids have lots of fun activities to choose from.
