New tradition kicks off at Third Friday

If you were in downtown Salisbury for Third Friday you may have noticed a lot of furry friends taking part in their own pets on the plaza, but there was also a new tradition starting.

Friday marked the inaugural Tri-County District Pinewood Derby contest.

The event registered 38 different cars, and raised about $6,000 for the Tri-County District Boy Scouts.

This event has a bit of a twist, as it's for the adults to compete with absolutely no rules.

"So for all of the adults we decided to remove all of the rules, and say hey if you can make a fast car, do it.  And what we've seen is a few with CO2 cartridges, extra weights," said Alexander Scott, a member of the boy scout committee.  "But it's all in the name of fun and raising money for scouts."

That money will be very useful for the scouts, it will help with providing camping trips, expanding programs, and benefits the annual friends of scouting campaign.
