Trenton Ave Arts Festival & Kinetic Kensington Derby Saturday!
Speaking of the underdogs, the Trenton Ave Arts Festival is also going on this weekend, Saturday, May 21, from 12p.m. – 5p.m. The 6th annual arts fest will feature crafters, vendors, food and the most interesting event of the year – the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby.
This bicycle powered soap-box race on artistic steroids is one of the most anticipated events of the weekend. The derby starts at 12:30p.m. The human powered design competition is as much about crossing the finish line as it is about how teams look doing it, so come out and support a great neighborhood tradidion.
I’ll be there, hunting down Gritty City for their amazing soy candles. I have to admit, I’m addicted!
