Soapbox Carts in Block Party Parade

The Montague Soapbox Races will be part of the Avenue A Block Party parade

Turners Falls - Entrants in the Montague Soapbox Races will bring their carts to the Avenue A Block Party to show them off in the parade, and display them during the block party.

Daniel Kornguth, the owner of a soapbox derby in Brattleboro and an early registrant in the Montague race, commented "Are you kidding? We'll be there to represent Brattleboro and challenge Montague to beat us."

Joe Landry, a local sculptor and artist, built a cart just for the parade. "My granddaughter wanted to be in the parade, so I built her a cart." He is considering entering the cart into the Montague Race and may be looking for a driver.

The parade starts at 2:00 PM at Second Street in front of MCTV and goes towards Fifth Street.

The Avenue A Block Party is celebrating its fourth year, and has become a regular annual event in Turners Falls, MA.
