Along with the stunning costumes, those who attended were treated to entertainment, music, raffles and Italian-themed treats.

It’s an annual tradition for Brainerd residents – soap box derby races occur once a month during the summer, starting in June and ending in September. The races, which are put on by Brainerd Parks and Recreation, are held at the hill on 15th Avenue NE next to Lum Park and are for kids ages 6-16. The entry fee is $5 and it isn’t necessary for the racer to build his or her own car, although there are specifications for building on the Brainerd Parks and Recreation website. The city has 10 loaner cars provided by sponsors for the races.
