Kirby Derby #16: Licensed to Drive – Saturday

Kirby Derby is an invitation for creative expression and community engagement. Fun creativity that is free from critique is a powerful contributor to happiness.

On one day a year since 2002, the tiny little neighborhood of Pullen Park Terrace grew well beyond its normal size to invite friends and friends of friends (and so on) to join them in celebrating creative expression and home grown fun. That firs year, the single event was a parade. On year 5, the now famous Kirby Derby Derby – of the soapbox variety – was added. This Raleigh tradition has continued to grow and gather loyal fans ever since.
