The Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race
Saturday, October 07, 2017

Kinetic Skulpture RaceJoin us Oct 7th & 8th for our 35th Great PT Bay Kinetic Race, there will be thrills, there will be chills, songs and of course there will be Glory!

The GREAT Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race was created in 1983. A Kinetic Skulpture is a human powered, artistically enhanced vehicle that must go through sand (Kwick Sand), mud,(The Dismal Bog), float on water, and transverse hilly, silly neighborhoods.  Some skulptures are engineering marvels while most are... a mixture of bicycle parts, styrofoam, duct tape, imagination and prayers. Awards are given to each racer whether they want it or not, but the most highly prized award is the Mediocrity Award; the skulpture that finishes in the middle of the pack. Bribes help. Kinetic racers and the glorious spectators must be kapable of having fun without taking the event too seriously.
