Kinetic Sculpture Race

50th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race and 47th Anniversary of the Kinetic Grand Championship. Wild and crazy people-powered sculptures traverse land, sand, and water to travel from the Arcata Plaza (10am viewing, with noon start on Saturday) to the finish line in the Victorian Village of Ferndale (finishing any time after noon Monday). It's all for the glory! Final awards ceremony at Ferndale’s Fireman’s Hall beginning around 5:30pm. Spectators Guide. Call the Kinetic Hotline: 707-786-3443, or email
