Soap Box Derby

RETURNS TO EAST NEPESSING STREET!
The Annual Soap Box Derby is great fun for boys, girls and dad’s alike. The Derby has been a favorite event at the festival since 2005.  Kids can enjoy building their own car leading up to race day or use a car sponsored by a local business.  Either way, it’s good, clean fun!

The derby team is so excited to be able to hold the event back on the hill on East Nepessing Street with the new road surface.

Be sure to sign up for this fun event!  It’s FREE!  DON’T HAVE A DERBY CAR?  NO PROBLEM.  THERE ARE DERBY CARS AVAILABLE BY CALLING 810-245-2300, EXT. 208

The Beginning

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 10.20.19 AM

On Aug. 28, 1902, Alonzo A. Bostick and his son Austin celebrated the grand opening of Bostick Stove Works in Lapeer. Neither Alonzo nor his son could have foreseen the legacy they bestowed on our community. The simple grand opening celebration inspired the idea of a community festival held for the first time the following year. The Lapeer Days Festival was born. From simple beginning’s it has grown over the years to become the county’s largest festival and Michigan’s largest FREE festival!
