Every community has their traditions.
England has gurning, Spain has the Day of the Geese, and Portland… Well, Portland has the PDX Adult Soapbox Derby.
Have you ever seen the movie Little Rascals? It’s a lot like that, only it has adults. In costumes.
Really though, it’s one of the coolest events you’ll ever see, and it’s been crowding the streets of of Mount Tabor near Portland, Oregon since 1997.
Team Yakima made a splash this year with their modified big-wheel, along with 41 other teams competing for prizes for speed, engineering, art and crowd pleasure. It’s fun, it’s crazy, and with over 5,000 people in attendance, it’s a party you won’t soon forget.
