West Columbia provides vital information to enjoy Kinetic Derby Day Saturday

West Columbia, SC — The City of West Columbia’s 2nd Annual Kinetic Derby Day, on April 27, 2019, is a guaranteed day of family fun, from 11 AM – 3:30 PM, on Meeting and State Streets in West Columbia, SC.

Here’s what to expect:

At 11 AM, the Kinetic Sculpture Parade will begin on Meeting Street at South Lucas Street. Kinetic sculptures are human-powered 3D representations bringing imagination to life using pedal power, as an individual or as a team. A team may include multiple members on a bike with themed costumes or multiple participants in costume riding or walking along with a sculpture that includes kinetic movement. New components to the event this year include a literary character/book themed Kinetic sculpture parade. They can be as simple as someone in costume riding a bike or more elaborate structures like the Flying Pterodactyls or The River Guardian that appeared in last year’s parade.

At 11:30 AM, the soapbox cars take over the massive hill on Meeting Street to race in adult and children divisions. Awards are given for the best art car, the fastest car, and best wipeout. At the bottom of the hill, take a right on to State Street to find art installations, artist tents, interactive science fun, food trucks, and exhibition soapbox racing.
