Always wanted to be in the Parade? Have a Quirky, Creative side just fighting to get out? Need a thrill to stir your inner child?

Boy, do we have the festival for you!

The City of West Columbia will host the 3rd Annual Kinetic Derby Day on Saturday, September 26, 2020 (rescheduled from April 23, 2020, due to COVID-19). This unique celebration will include a parade of kinetic sculptures (human-powered, handmade floats that highlight the community’s pride and creativity). The parade is followed by an afternoon of adult and child soapbox derby racing.
