Waite Park's big event of the year is nearly upon us -the Annual Pushcart Derby & Fall Festival on Saturday, September 12th from 11am-2pm.

Now seven years in the running, the Pushcart Derby returns with $400 in combined cash prizes and more fun than you can shake a stick at. We've posted the Official Rules and Registration. There's even a sample cart diagram to work from for building your very own. It's a perfect opportunity for civic groups, local businesses, block clubs, families and friends alike, to show off their creativity, have fun, and maybe put a little cash in their pocket!

In concert with the derby, the Fall Festival will bring back great food, live music, kids entertainment (games and a bouncy house), and an ever-expanding silent auction. The Waite Park Community Garden will also be holding a plant exchange for interested gardeners to purchase plants or donate some of their very own.

Mark it on your calendar and join your neighbors for a memorable Saturday in Waite Park. See you at the races!
