A Virtual Event on (what was) Race Day, May 3, 2020, 11am Eastern Time

To All Kinetinauts Past and Future,

Saturday, May 2 would have been Baltimore’s 22nd Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race. We will not race this year, but we will celebrate!

Mother Theresa and her team are rising to the challenge and bringing us a portion of the opening ceremony: a live Virtual Blessing of De-feet by Sister Euphonia O’Blivion (aka Joe Wall) with an uplifting message for all. 


We invite you to don clean socks, stick your feet in the air, and join us for this holiest of blessings. Look for other special guest appearances (like maybe the Soda Quackers with our video above??)


The online event starts at 11am Baltimore time (EDT), but registration is required at https://bit.ly/2xMes9Z

Hope to see you there!

Kinetically Yours,

Kinetic Mother Theresa

And the Soda Quackers Team

Kinetic sculpture races are organized contests of human powered, amphibious, all-terrain works of art.  The event first launched in 1969 in Ferndale, California in 1969. Today, races are held in several cities around the country, with the winner of each race competing in a World Championship Event.

Understandably, Mother Theresa has postponed this year's race due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  However, the naturally free-spirited Soda Quackers will not be sidelined for long.  As soon as the virus clears, we will continue to build our "wild thing", enjoying the luxury of time "to be even more brilliant", as noted by a seasoned Quacker!
