Saturday February 26 @ 11:00 am
Last year New Town came to life on a Saturday morning with 21 colorful chariots and over 80 costumed team members. From lounge chairs on wheels to the queen on her throne- the race was a site to see. Tons of spectators watched the mad dash start from Sullivan Square through town with teams eating, drinking, pushing, and shoving their way back to Sullivan Square for the finish. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals as well as a Victory cup were presented in an elaborate ceremony. A most creative chariot award was also presented.
For 2011 we hope to have even more teams and hundreds of spectators for this 1.5 mile race through New Town.
The race will begin and end at Sullivan Square. Teams with a maximum of 4 members will push their chariots through a set route, stopping off at local businesses to consume a beverage and chocolate dessert before continuing the race. The course is approximately 1.5 miles long with over 10 stops scheduled. This event will not only be great fun for the teams involved but also for the local community who can line the streets and cheer on the teams. The $200 team registration fee goes to Inclusion, a local non profit organization.
