The Frankfort Lions Club is holding its Second Annual Cardboard Sled Derby as part of Winter on the Green. The Derby will happen on
Sunday, 26 January 2014, 1:00 P.M. til 3:00P.M.
Where: The Breidert Green at Kansas and Ash in historic Frankfort.
The concept is simple. Kids and their dads make a sled out of cardboard boxes and duct tape. The dad pulls the child in a side by side race against another Kid-dad duo. The event goes on whether there is snow or not. Either way we all have fun. The LIONS award some prizes and everyone has hot chocolate and cookies to warm up.
Build and decorate your sled at home using simple materials:
1. Cardboard Boxes
2. Duct tape
3. White glue
4. Rope for pulling
5. Paint or marker pens
After the races, the kids can also kick field goals, and play one on one hockey.
