On Saturday, May 11, human-powered, homemade floats will parade through East Kensington to the infamous mud pit obstacle.
There, spectators can cheer on their favorites from the stands and a panel of judges will pick winners for Best Engineering, Best Breakdown, Best/Worst Pun and more categories.
Spectators at the 13th annual Kensington Derby can expect to see a lot of crazy costumes and ticked-out bicycles.
The derby is one of those wonderfully wacky, only-in-Philly traditions and if you've never witnessed it before, it's worth checking out.
Saturday, May 11
Noon to 6 p.m. | Free to attend
Trenton Avenue, between York and Norris streets
