2005 Bernal Soapbox Derby

I'm so bummed I missed it: 2005 Illegal Soapbox Derby
A proud Bernal Heights neighborhood tradition, the Illegal Soapbox Derby Society enforces only one rule: Every car must have a beer holder.
I've seen it other years and both the crowd and the racers are a trip. Check out the Flickr photoset to get a pretty good flavor for the event. And what I like best of all is the way the racers all pitch in before the race and thoroughly clean the roadway, sweeping and shoveling away all the gravel and sand that washes over the road. And they leave the part pretty clean too. These people know how to party!
