PHOTOS and CAPTIONS BY DAVID WELTON

It was a fine day on First Street as the Soup Box Derby contestants raced downhill during the annual Soup Box Derby on Sunday, Aug 17. Since 1972, Langley’s Soup Box Derby has entertained with the innovative car designs and costumes. The streets were lined with spectators and straw bales, the bales being used only one time by local legend Peter Lawlor and his “over-ripe old banana” car. The Whidbey Island Winery won by a barrel and trophies were handed out to all the participants.
