Zany Zucchinis

A soap box derby for zucchinis with wheels is just one of the many events taking place August 16 for Hi Neighbour Day.

Sunshine Goldsbury is expecting many of the zucchini plants she handed out at the Errington Farmers Market this spring will be turned into squash race cars like this one.


On August 9 at 11 a.m. a new and improved zucchini race track will be put to the test at the Errington Farmers Market.  Bob Herbison who is one of the organizers of the annual fundraiser in Errington said the new ramp now has room for four racers at once instead of two as well as a jump.

He said there will be a finish line tape to determine the winner instead of the longest distance achieved.
