Video: Cub Scouts Build Cars for Pinewood Derby Race
By Alyssa Martin
COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Hundreds of local cub scouts from across the Golden Triangle gathered for the annual Pinewood Derby Race Saturday morning.
With the help of their parents, the cub scouts built their own cars from basic wood kits.
The kit contained only a block of pine, plastic wheels and metal axles.
Building their car allows for families to work together and the scouts to display their creativity through their unique designs.
This year’s race featured cub scouts from packs across 10 counties. The boys are in first through fifth grade.
