A giant caterpillar rolls down Lower Broadway in Kingston, a three-dimensional rendering of Magritte’s The False Mirror trails close behind. No, these aren’t psychotropic-induced hallucinations—both are soapbox derby cars competing for artist-designed trophies at the Kingston Artists Soapbox Derby. The competition rolls through Kingston for the twentieth time on August 16 at 1pm. Seven trophies will be handed out at the awards ceremony, including prizes for best pop-culture inspired car, best car referencing a work of art, best steampunk-style car, and the “Rondout reject” award, bestowed to the derby’s most endearing jalopy. Live performances and vendors will be scattered across the sidewalks of Lower Broadway, adding to the fun. (845) 383-1663; Kingstonartistsoapboxderby.com.
