2007 Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
Kinetic Sculptures are amphibious, human powered works of art -- steered by Kinetinauts -- custom built for the race. Each May, the 8-hour race covers 15 miles -- mostly on pavement, but the contest also includes a trip into the Chesapeake Bay. Awards are given for everything from the Speed Award to something called Sock Creature of the Universe. Don't ask, cuz I don't know.
If you can't get your Sculpture ready by April 21, that's okay: you can always spectate. Just make sure your costume is ready. Boring-looking crowds are, evidently, frowned upon.
