A creative trophy for creative racers. Mike Robinson and son Lucas created this “wheels” trophy for the winner of the Crazy Wheels Race this Saturday at the Downtown Aldergrove MiniFest.

Get creative, get ‘crazy’

It’s a crazy trophy, custom-made for a crazy contest.

Aldergrove Fair Days director Mike Robinson and his son Lucas have handcrafted a trophy out of assorted wheels for the first annual “Crazy Wheels Cup.”

This contest will be part of the Downtown Aldergrove Mini Fest set for this Saturday, June 11. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. there will be a variety of family-oriented entertainment, such as a live music and dance stage, a Pet Parade and Soap Box Derby.

The Soap Box Derby will run along 271 Street north of Fraser Highway, and the road will naturally be closed to normal traffic for this event. Youngsters aged five to 12 will race their soap boxes in the morning, with the finals wrapping up around lunch time.

This will set the stage for the running of the Crazy Wheels Cup, a competition open to all ages. Competitors will be judged on creativity, rather than speed in this contest.

“We want to see how creative Aldergrove can get,” said Robinson. “There will be maximum points for style, not speed.”

Entrants are required to build their own rolling devices, with the only proviso that the vehicle has at least three wheels, steering and brakes, and a 200 pound unloaded weight limit.

For information on this event call Robinson at 604-351-1175.  For information on the soap box derby call Kenny at 778-772-7417.

The pet parade is hosted by Royal Paw Palace and their number for information is 604-607-3888.

There will be other activities during the day at downtown Aldergrove merchants, including a free barbecue at Aldergrove Credit Union.
