The region’s biggest Soap Box Derby race goes off at 7 a.m. Saturday at Soap Box Derby of Culpeper’s brand new track off U.S. 522. Be there to support all the 8- to 17-year-old drivers – but especially the 16 local drivers sponsored by Rappahannock County businesses and organizations. For more information on the race, visit culpepersoapboxderby.com or call 540-825-8799.
Saturday would also be a good day to visit the county Visitors Center for its Community Day food and friendship (from 9 to 5), for the same at the CFC Farm and Home Center for its customer appreciation day (from 7:30 to 4; add bluegrass, gardening help and sale prices to the mix) and more. Today would be a good day to visit page 2 (for the Rapp Happenings calendar) or RappNews.com, where there’s always many more calendar listings online.
