Get ready for some FAST FOOD!
The Valley’s hottest veggie race returns for its 10th year! On Saturday July 23rd, get ready to squash the competition in this fun and zany race at the Easton Farmers’ Market. Entry fee of $5 includes racer’s choice of zucchini, wheels & axles, access to carving tools and accessories with expert assistance from the Zuke 500 Pit Crew. And of course everyone’s favorite NASCAR official (and his lovely assistant, Barbara) return for the fun!
Carving period is from 9 am to 10:45 am, and the race begins at 11:00 am. Prizes will be awarded for the fastest car in each category: Sports Car, Mid-Size and Monster Truck. A new creative category has been added this year: ‘The Green Machine’ built entirely from veggies! Cars may be pre-carved but wheels must be attached directly to the zucchini. Chassis or platforms of any sort are strictly prohibited.
New activities have been added for the 10th anniversary of the race including a Zucchini Growers Contest with prizes for the largest and the weirdest zucchini, and a Zucchini 500 Photo station where folks can snap a pic of the their friends or family in a zucchini car!
