Iconic race dubbed world's largest to be held on June 13

2015 SBD logoCity of Fredericksburg Parks & Recreation is excited to announce its new partnership with Fredericksburg Parent & Family Magazine as a new co-title sponsor of the 19th annual Rappahannock Regional Soapbox Derby.

They have such an expansive reach throughout the area reaching the entire Rappahannock region and have been a great partner to us through the years.
