The 35th Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race
Join us October 7-8, 2017 for thrills, chills, songs and of course…Glory!
The theme this year is “Kinetic Goes Kosmic.” A kinetic skulpture is a human powered, artistically enhanced vehicle that must go through sand (Kwick Sand), mud (The Dismal Bog), float on water (The Great Bay), 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. Kinetic racers as well as Glorious Spectators must be kapable of having fun without taking the event too seriously.
