The Pinewood Derby Race will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 2 at Janss Marketplace. The public is invited to watch the and enjoy shopping and dining specials.

Pinewood Derby trophies will be presented to both Scout and Non-Scout Member Youth fastest Race speed winners. Scouts will also compete for the special category trophies including “District King of the Hill,” “Best in Show” and “Cub’s Choice”.
The Pinewood Derby has been a favorite Boys Scouts of America program since 1952 as Cub Scouts race their decorated homemade cars down the tracks with winners advancing to the finals. While competition is inherently part of the Pinewood Derby, all racers are treated as winners. The Race reinforces the Boy Scouts of America mission to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
