Every year the All-American Soup Box Derby holds a race on Fayette between 5th and 8th Street in Conshohocken on July 4th!  This is their 60th year running the Soap Box Derby.
Conicelli Autoplex decided to jump on board this year and sponsor the event.  There will be vendors along Fayette all day with hot dogs, water ice, and refreshments.  The Conshohocken United Methodist Church will have BBQ Chicken and Ribs as well.
Boys and girls ages 8 to 18 years old are encouraged to construct and race their homemade Soap Box Derby cars.  The winners are rewarded trophies and cash prizes.
