Derby 2015The Annual Manotick Soapbox Derby & Picnic in the Park event gets better every year and this year’s event was simply outstanding.

With well over 70 volunteers from the Manotick Village and Community Association, the Manotick Kiwanis, the Manotick Lions, the Manotick Legion and the Manotick Voluntary Fire Department, and with the full support of Councillor Moffatt and city staff, this year’s entire Manotick Soapbox Derby day was broadcast live on U-tube.

Next year, the event might be broadcast thought live feeds from drones following racers down the Beaverwood hill from Centennial Park to the finish line in front of the Manotick Legion

At the Picnic in the Park, 35 dozen ears of delicious corn from Abby Hill Farms were gobbled up.  Because of the terrific turn-out, the hamburgers and hot dogs also ran out and volunteers had to scramble for more supplies.

The Manotick Brass played over the lunch break, a roving clown made balloon creations and many kids had their faces painters by creative artists.

New this year were two 2-seater Super-Kid carts, purchased by the MVCA to allow children with physical or developmental challenges to participate.  Four racers made use of these carts and, as our first Super Kids, received special medallions given out at the award ceremony at the end of the day.

1st  place - Evan Reaume for cart #19, “the Hamburgrlar”

Truckin' through Manotick, not so much across the Vimy Memorial Bridge

Video Comparison


The MVCA is committed to urge the city to lighten the load on the Manotick bridges and provide improved truck access to the new Vimy Memorial Bridge.  We need your support to make this happen.   Rural residents and businesses who have not already done so are asked to make their views known by sending a brief note to their ward councilor at george.darouze@ottawa.ca or scott.moffatt@ottawa.ca and to me at president@manotickVCA.org .
