Diaper Derby

Diaper Derby:

The Diaper Derby is a fun filled event for crawling children under 18 months of age. Crawlers participating in the Diaper Derby will crawl from one cheering “coach” to the other (each racer must be accompanied by at least one adult and a helper). The “coaches” can be behind the start and finish lines and can use toys, dolls, baby bottles, keys, etc. to offer the racer incentives to race to the finish. Any extra help and the racer will be disqualified! The winning racers must cross the finish line on their own. You can only enter each child once in the following classes: Girl, Boy, under 7 months, 7-10 months, 10-12 months & 12-18 months.
