Show your support for the Memorial Centre Farmers Market by creating and racing the vegetable of your choice in this weekend’s 4th annual Zucchini 500.

Kids and adults are invited to transform any vegetable into a race car using a car making kit that’s provided free of charge. Aside from a few size limits, there are no restrictions to the materials or decorations for the car.

The race cars can be made at home or at one of the upcoming car making workshops, including one on Saturday July 22 at 1 pm at Minotaur Games & Gifts at 78 Princess Street, and another in the Memorial Centre Market Kid’s Tent at 9 am on the day of the race – Sunday, July 23rd – when the Zucchini 500 begins at 11 am.

Loyalist Area Scouts volunteers will be there to help oversee the races and bringing their famed “KubKar” track for the event.
