Once again the kinetic contraptions paraded around Kensington and Fishtown.  A lurching, loping, rolling cavalcade  of modified bicycles and vehicles.  At the end of their coarse is the dreaded mud pit, while a challenge in past derbies, this year’s pit only claimed two and they basically did belly-flops into the mud.

Kensington or the end of the world?

For many of you May 21, 2011 is a very significant day and you’ll probably be preparing for Jesus and the end of the world.  More than likely you’ll be in your individual chosen spot to receive rapture and won’t have much else planned.  Anyone know if there was a time of day given?

Anyway,  if that doesn’t do it for you or it doesn’t pan out and you’re looking for something else to do we recommend the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby (KKSD), a design competition/parade of human powered vehicle floats and the Trenton Ave Arts Festival.

Here are our shots from 2010:
