August 17th is the PDX Adult Soapbox Derby on Mt. Tabor.  Now in its 17th year, the Adult Soapbox Derby is one of the most Portland-y events out there.  This is not anything like your childhood memories of soapbox races! This is a serious competition for some seriously fun-loving, gutsy, and some might say childlike, adults.

And where does such a daring event take place? Why, of course on a volcanic cinder cone! Because streets are for kids!
