It just so happens that 2017 marks the 15th year of the Clintonville Farmers' Market, and the 30th year for Worthington Farmers Market! So, on August 12th at the end of National Farmers' Market Week, we are hosting a joint birthday bash. Here at CFM, we'll have zucchini car time trials, face painting, a Chef Battle by the Cooking Caravan and live music by Freedom N' Folk Revival. Worthington will host a Farm-to-You petting zoo and guacamole demo by Chipotle. And luckily, there will be a trolley running down High St between the two markets, so you can catch all the big events. Mark your calendar; you won't want to miss the celebration!

The Great Zucchini Race Rules & Guidelines
All cars must start by gravity from a stand still, at the starting point. No pushing is allowed. Time
trials will be conducted from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM, and the car whose clocks the fastest time is
the winner. If any car leaves the track the race can be restarted. If the same car leaves again, the
car is eliminated.
SPECIFICATIONS FOR VEHICLES
Overall width of wheels is not to exceed 27cm. The maximum distance between wheels is 7cm
(This is ensure your car stays on the track!)
Overall length is not to exceed 25cm.
The car shall not ride on springs.
1. The vehicles should be built by the racer.
2. Vehicles should be constructed using a whole or freshly carved zucchini. Moldy cars
will probably fall apart!
3. Vehicles should either have wheels securely attached through the zucchini body or have
the zucchini securely attached to a wheeled platform. Make sure that the overall size of
the car meets the requirements.
4. Decorate your vehicle!
5. Have fun! After all, this is what it is all about.
