Please Note: The Optimist Legends Boys and Girls Soap Box Derby that usually takes place during Springtime in Paris has been cancelled for 2018
Along Broadway Street East in Paris (old Station Hill), parents and their children will line the hill to watch their creations race off our ramp and down Broadway Street Hill to the finish line.
The race is a double knock out with all racers guaranteed a minimum of 2 races. All participants will receive an Optimist Legends Soapbox Derby T shirt and a free pop and burger courtesy of the Paris Lions Club after the race in front of the Band shell at Lions Park. The top 4 racers in each division will each receive a trophy and a medal, and there will be a trophy for the soap box racer that demonstrates the best appearance and originality.
Please note, the Optimist Legends Boys and Girls Soap Box Derby will not run if weather conditions are not favourable.
