A lot of folks have been asking and we now have your answer. Kirby Derby will return for its tenth year this year on June 25th, 2011 with a huge celebration. The crew over on Kirby have a good way of creating a fun themed block party each year and this year you don't have one theme to choose from but nine years worth! Therefore, anything goes as long as it has been a part of at least one of the Kirby Derbies over the past ten years. Or, as the Kirby crowd calls it "a living breathing montage of the love story of 1o years of Kirby Derby Days. Ain't that special?".
Below are all the details as well as more info over at the Kirby Derby X website (thumbs up for the Mac OSX reference). So grab your kids, your friends, you parents and a costume and come out for one of the wackiest and funnest block parties in town. Also, we've attached a few photos from previous years.
