Each year in October, Port Townsend hosts the Kinetic Sculpture Race. We have a parade, the Koronation Kostume Ball and race. In the race the human powered Kinetic Skulptures have to traverse a varied course that includes streets with hills, Port Townsend Bay, a sand dune at Fort Worden State Park and a mud pit at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. The race and festival offer many prizes, the most coveted of which is the Mediocrity award. Entries come mostly from the West Coast but teams come from as far away as Maryland.
