Second Annual Pinewood Derby at the Borough

Matt McConnell's entry from last year

If you’re looking to recall the fun of building a Pinewood Derby car for Boy Scouts or would like to enjoy for the first time as an adult, here’s your chance! The Borough is hosting the second annual Pinewood Derby Classic on Saturday, June 19th at 2PM.

You can pick up the kit for $20 at The Borough, as well as get more information on weight requirements. There will be awards for both the race winner and best in show, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Wake County SPCA.
