The Millet & District Museum is excited to host their second Pinewood Derby. Modelled after the Boy Scout Kub Kar Rally this is a wooden car race open to all ages.

The events will begin on August 25 with a free barbeque at the Splash Park from noon to 1 p.m. During this time, Town of Millet councillors and staff will also have a chance to race their cars.

Race registration will be held on August 26 from 12-12:30 pm at the Agriplex. The Boy Scouts Demo will take place from noon to 1 p.m. and the race will begin at 1 p.m. Prizes will be given for the first, second, and third fastest cars as well as for the most creatively designed cars.

Cars must weigh under 142 grams and meet all other requirements, including length, width and height. These requirements can be found online at www.milletmuseum.ca under the Kid’s Summer Program tab. Cars can also be weighed at the museum on August 23.

Car kits can be purchased at the museum until August 19. Only cars purchased from the museum will be permitted to race. Kits can then be picked up from the museum.
