ROCHESTER, Minn. - The Minnesota Children's Museum of Rochester hosted its annaul Cardboard Sled Race on Sunday.
Families created sleds made out of cardboard, tape, paint, and glue and raced them down a hill. In addition to speed, racers were judged on other categories like Best Team Spirit and Best Design.
"I was just excited to see all the sleds today, actually. I thought it would be fun to see what other people come up with," Sara Kelly, a racer at the event, said.
Some of the sled designs include a shark, taco, princess carriage, and 'batmobile.'
"I was excited about making it and it was really fun to come up with ideas," 11-year-old Avery, said.
The proceeds of the event go back to the Minnesota Children's Museum of Rochester.
