Soap Box Derby to get new location

The 2013 Riverfest Soap Box Derby has a new location, on Grant Court.

According to Mitch Voehl, organizer of the event, the derby was moved because last year's 4th Ave. location did not provide enough grade. Consequently, drivers had trouble reaching the good speeds.

Grant Court, located on the north side of Windom, near 20th St., provides a somewhat steeper hill and also a fairly new street. The June 7 soap box derby is scheduled to be held a few hours before the annual Riverfest fireworks, which are also shot off in that area.

For information about this event, or to register, contact Mitch Voehl at (507) 317-1520.
