It's hard to think 'fall' when it feels like our Minnesota summer has just begun, but Waite Park's big event of the year is a sign of the approaching season to come -the Annual Pushcart Derby & Fall Festival on Saturday, September 13th from 11am-2pm.
Now six 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!

Thank you to all those who braved the rain and participated in the NE Ride today!
The Waite Park Community Council sponsored a stop along the route to help riders replenish, step out of the rain for a bit and get their photo taken in our NE Photo Booth (garage)!
A big thanks to the WPCC volunteers (especially Alita Began), Caroline Beard for the great photos, and the NE Ride Committee and volunteers!
Look for a possible return of the Photo Booth this fall at the 6th Annual Waite Park Pushcart Derby.
The Northeast Ride, slated for June 14 from 9am - 2pm, will take cyclists on a tour of Northeast Minneapolis, stopping at each of the 13 neighborhoods throughout NE.
The Waite Park Neighborhood stop will feature a photo booth for riders to remember the event by and snacks to recharge with.
Hosted by the NECDC, and co-sponsored in part by the Waite Park Community Council (WPCC).
Ride starts at NE Armory (1025 NE Broadway) and ends at Indeed Brewery. For a detailed map of the ride route, visit: http://www.northeastride.org/ridemap/
