Art Sled Rally
While sledding enthusiasts tend to prefer to ride on sleds designed for optimal speeds, the folks at the Art Sled Rally will be going for a slightly different experience. Hitting the hills this afternoon will be homemade constructions created to look awesome, even if they fall apart, get stuck, or tip over when in use. Why? Well, that's half the fun. Each year, folks construct fantastical sleds made out of cardboard, foam, and other craft-project items and send them down a hill at Powderhorn Park. Past contraptions have included an urban garden sled, a sled designed to look like the Titanic, a loaf of bread sled, a piece of cheese sled, and a colorfully painted refrigerator box. It's a wholesome and hilarious afternoon, and it's not to be missed. Folks looking to sled on Saturday need to bring a helmet and print out a waiver from the event's website beforehand — safety first, even if you're only going 2 mph.
