On Saturday, residents of East Kensington took to the streets with their hand-made parade floats where they were greeted with obstacles of orange powder, dodgeballs, and silly string at Norris and Susquehanna streets.

Derby contestants ended their ride through a messy mud pit at Trenton Ave and Dauphin streets before the final awards ceremony. Contestants were awarded based on a variety of categories, including “best engineering” and “best costuming.”

The daylong event also featured art vendor tables along Trenton Avenue with items for purchase and a variety of food trucks.
