Watch people ride crazy contraptions in Kensington

The Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby is unlike any other neighborhood arts fest. While spectators hit up the 14 food trucks and browse more than a hundred tables with local wares, competitors will ride through the streets on vehicles of their own design. They're almost much fun to look at as they are to ride.

Where: Trenton Avenue from Norris to Hagert

When: May 19, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

How much: Free
