If your child would like to race down Berkshire Hill in East Alton, tomorrow is their day. It's the 21st annual Soap Box Derby, and there is room for a few more participants. The public is welcome to make a day of it, as there will also be vendors and crafters at the bottom of the hill, with the event running most of the day after beginning at 10am.
Check in is at 9:20am. It is for fun only, and the cars are provided. East Alton Director of Parks & Recreation Chris Logan tells The Big Z it’s a fun atmosphere.
