DOWNHILL DERBY brought to you by HAMILTON-LAURAVILLE MAIN STREET

Join us on Harford Road for another community event, starting with a costume parade at 9:00!  Bring the little ones dressed in costume for a parade on the raceway and Trick-or-Treating at participating businesses.  Downhill Derby race begins at 10:00 am.  Bring your family, neighbors and friends to this fun event.

This year we welcome Mayor Catherine Pugh as our official emcee for the race!

Officer Steve Angelini is looking forward to returning to the derby to check speeds as the racers drive down Harford Road.  Thank you to Mayor Pugh and Officer Angelini for donating their time to our young race drivers!

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO HELP SET UP THE RACEWAY!

Be daring!  Be strong!  Donate a little of your time, beginning at 8:00 am!  Help us install snow fencing, hay bales, unload soapbox cars, set up speakers and a starting ramp.   Give a hand and reap the benefits by taking part in building your community!  For more information about volunteering, call 410-319-7150.  Make a difference!
