Portland Adult Soap Box Derby @ Mt Tabor Park
Aug 17 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm
Portland Adult Soap Box Derby @ Mt Tabor Park

A Portland institution for over 20 years. Teams of adults race down Mt. Tabor in their homebuilt ‘cars’. It’s not so much about winning as it is looking good. I mean, where else can you see a giant toilet racing down the side of a volcano and almost tipping over. If you live in Portland have haven’t been to the Adult Soapbox Derby, you haven’t lived.
