Soap box, Langley-style
Since 1972, First Street in downtown Langley has been home to some of the speediest and wackiest racers for the Soup Box Derby. Anyone can build a racer that can make it down a hill, but this is all about ingenuity, creativity and a little bit of that Langley weirdness.
The derby begins 10 a.m. on Sunday.
